I cant see the other one, but this one is incorrect. neither 4.6 nor 5.2 
or 3.9 have those lifecycles.

The CentOS Version if 3 or 4 or 5, the point bit is only a revision 
under that and we need to make sure that its clear to people that what 
they run is CentOS-5 and not CentOS-5.2

People who *really* *really* need to care, are very very few, and they 
can work the relationship out between 5.2 and 5.1 themselves. If they 
cant, they dont need to care.

Perhaps an alternate display with 2 dimensions that could have point 
release info, as well as lifecycle info ? Or is there some other way to 
highlight the fact that while 5.2 is the latest release CentOS-5, its 
not what CentOS-5 is going to be forever ( which is what it looks like 
from this image ).
