If you can set aside some funds for support from Equinox or another
firm, then you really may not need to worry about waiting all that much.
I am very serious about switching to Evergreen, and I do not have
in-house support for anything beyond Linux.  But I managed just fine
with Horizon without any in-house support at all, and with Evergreen, I
can contract with a 3rd party to provide support.  Considering the
rather large maintenance bill from my current vendor, I am willing to
bet I can get pretty decent support for the same amount.
