    Fedora 20 end of life

    If Fedora 20 passed its life cycle, why are there yet upgrades for it?

    It doesn't go EOL until one month has passed after F22 was released.

    so what happens then?

    I use 20 on one computer and its rock solid - I'd rather run with 20 than the mess that is 21 and 22 on my other machines....

    will it still be secure/stable etc to use 20 until the world ends?

    It will be as stable as it currently is, there just won't be any more updates. You can manually update some applications like Firefox or what have you, and I *think* that the flash plugin will continue to get updated from the adobe-linux (at least I hope so).

    Security wise, I guess until the next exploit is discovered....

    Of course, if you are worried and don't want to upgrade to F20/F21 there is always CentOS 7 to consider. That is LTS and will receive security and stability updates
