My last 3.x system expired a few years ago with an uptime of about six years, which was quite pleasing :-). Most ISP-like sites I talk to deploy new systems as 7.x and 8.x, and the appliance vendors I interact with have all been in the process of going from 6.x (often 6.1) to 7.x in the last year or two.

I remember the talk you did at google where you showed that commits
were still going into the much older branches, (3.x?) that was quiet
