We keep our backups for 6 weeks. And after the migration
from HP-UX/PA-RISC to Linux/IA64 we did the same.

Why do you keep old backups? All important "old" data is in the archive,
which is independent from the operating-system. And all important fresh
data is in the current backup. What do you want do do with backups
that are some years old?
