Given: RHEL5 goes end of life on 2017-03-31, which is 47 weeks, 6 days, 13
hours, 40 minutes, and 50 seconds from now

and that even now the updates are limited to critical (ie remote code
execution) pretty much might I suggest now is a good time to be thinking
about that future of that system and if not move to C7 at least move to C6?

I can't even imagine the pain of using C5 as a desktop in today's world ...
