You should try arguing with someone like Bank of Americas security and

FreeBSD minor version upgrades are meant to be non-disruptive. However, I will
admit that I have not performed any such upgrades in a critical environment, so
if you think they are disruptive, please enlighten me with the details.
Also, there are options out there for getting support for extended periods if
you need it. Some companies are built around providing support for things that
the original developers have long abandoned because some businesses need it.


It's not how disruptive they are technically.
it's how many months of shakedown testing you have to go through before they
allow you to put new software on any production system.
