What do you normally do when hardware or software hits EOL?

Look, you are free to run Windows 3.1 on your 10BASE2 network, if that 
makes less work for you, and less work is a variable you optimize for in 
your networks.  This is, however, 2019.  IPv6 has been around for a while. 
IPv4 has been officially depleted for years now.  IPv4 being considered 
the "legacy Internet" is not that many years away.  Is it more work to get 
ahead of the curve, or play catch up?
