I have 5 XP machines on my node that are used to crunch data 24/7. So, 
I'm looking for an OS platform that has a 10 year EOL to replace XP/3.

What I got from your website appears to be a year or two at most on 
freebsd 8.3, and we really don't want to repeat the travails of the 
transition from 98SE to XP/3 after this one because the research team 
will be mostly mid 80's early 90"s by then.  It's a lot of data fetched 
over the web so we need security updates to keep the OS secure with 
minimal interaction.
