That might be true, but 17.2 is an LTS (long term support) release & currently has 4 years of updates/support left, after those four years you can then get the next LTS & enjoy another 5 years of updates. You really shouldn't run a system for more than a few years before doing a clean install anyways.

I get what you're saying, but that's not how desktops work. LTS means nothing to desktop users. In six months, there will be something 18.x does for 3D video and sound driver support (or lots of CLI bullshit to setup). People want it because Skyrim will run 30% better, and they hate CLI bullshit (as they should) so they'll upgrade then, not in a few years. Or something like that.

Okay, I see what you mean, for people who want to stay on the bleeding edge Mint is not the answer, correct.
