the LTS releases of Ubuntu get 3 years support for the Desktop edition and 5years support for the server edition (no gui). So if you wish to stay with Ubuntu, you may just want to use the LTS releases instead of upgrading to the latest version each time.
Alternatively you may want to look at Debian-stable, they release a new version of it every two years roughly and support each version roughly 3 years.
I'm not sure about PCLinuxOS.. Without wanting to discredit the post above, but it looks as if PCLinuxOS has the same update-rythm as normal Ubuntu does, namely a new release every half year.
is that a bird? a plane? nooo it's the flying blueberry!
