@elementary Hi, :) the interview in episode 7 of @Linux4Everyone is sparking my interest about Elementary.
Will there be a way to upgrade from version 5 to the next major version that will be based on Ubuntu 20.04?
Because not having to reinstall every 2, 3 or 4 years is something very valuable for the user experience. And the accessibility of the OS to people without the technical level and involvement to do such operations.

But I know whether making a rolling release distro or an upgradable one in a reliable way for the general public is a massive technical challenge.
I'm still searching for my two local LUGs such distros to someday avoid giving the users an OS with a literally planned obsolescence.

@elementary @Linux4Everyone
About not having to reinstall every few years, this is the good case. Worse is ending with an unmaintained distro, and after a while having unsupported packages (highest impact will be the browser)
And even in the good scenario, before the end of the support period, the software can get quite old. (i.e. Ubuntu 16.04 LTS)
