I could see Fedora, or others, suggesting that their latest is a testing
release or some such, and one might want to consider the previous
release. Ubuntu does something like that: here's the long-term-support
release, followed by a bells-and-whistles release, etc.
But yes, to go back to 2003... actually, earlier; didn't XP ship in 2001?
- would be ridiculous.
