Missing support info for RED X2

How long is X2 supported ?
"Life Time" section has been added to wiki.
"During the first 2 years, the distribution will be get new versions of all software included in it."
So whats the difference to ROSA Desktop Fresh ?
Include this the Kernel, mesa and X.11 ?
Is it just, that RED receive this updates a bit slower ?
Yes, that's right, there is no significant difference in package set. But we would like to provide a more stable distribution, since Fresh (despite our well-working QA team) sometimes receives potentially dangerous updates and some errors are detected and reported by Fresh users. For RED, we want to significantly reduce the risk of updates that can break something. As a result, our sales department sale technical support for RED, but not for Fresh.
Though in future it is possible that we will implement some unique software for RED if we will see such a need/requests.
That is really the most wonderful release method i ever hear of, until now. :D
I suggest to include "after long and serious testing by our QA team and the users of our desktop fresh edition" into the lifetime chapter, in order to make it clear, that RED is really a hardcore stable distribution.
"During the first 2 years, the distribution will be get new versions of all software included in it." sound a bit like a full rolling OS to me.
Thanks a lot for the quick response and fix, great support again. :D

Thanks, the wording in wiki has been updated slightly. As for the site - marketing staff decided to leave this post "as is".
