It gets updates just like Fedora.  It's a repackaged RHEL5 system with 
different logos, to put it simply.  It will have the same EOL as RHEL5.
The kernel was optimized for server environments, so not all of the 
hardware is ready to go out of the box.  But once you get it working, 
it's a rock solid OS, being designed for the enterprise environment.  It 
gets package updates like any other OS, but for a Myth box do you really 
need them?  I installed Ubuntu and then installed Myth and have never 
done an update.  If it's not broke...
