I have three PC's running Fedora 14 at home, and I'm far away from home until 2012.01.01. When I get home, I plan to migrate them to Scientific Linux 6.1, which has longer support time.
Since Fedora 14 isn't maintained after 2011.12.08, is it a security threat to use it after that? The PC's are only used for simple purposes, e.g. web browsing, email, etc. The web browser is Google Chrome, and I installed the Web of Trust plugin a long time ago to add a small amount of browsing security.
Should I find a way to install Scientific Linux 6.1, or is using an unsupported distro for 24 days not a major security problem? I don't want to run
dist-upgrade via SSH because it could kill the OS.
