Mandriva 2006 (official) nearing EOL

I just received this notification from the Mandriva Security Announce mailing list:
This is just a quick note to everyone that according to the Mandriva EOL
(End of Life) Policy, Mandriva Linux 2006 will not be receiving security
updates as of April 13th, 2007.

Please be aware of this as you plan upgrade and migration strategies to
newer/supported products.

Thank you.

Just an FYI,

I haven't used Mandriva regularly, but it's only been 1 year and they are cutting support already? Does this affect paying customers, who have silver/gold membership? It seems like a hassle to have to upgrade every year just to get support and updates. Very odd

I use the free version here, so I do not know. You can check their Product Lifetime Policy here.
