    Personally, I believe that if we survive the 1.4 billion years for our sun to die, we'll likely have already left the solar system or figured something else out to divert our extinction. So, we'll either go extinct way before our sun die, or much much much after.

    Never going extinct is not an option. Everything does.

    At the rate we're going, there's a very decent chance it will be sooner rather than later.

    Still, our technology - bound to kill our species - might make some survive for a few hundred years to come.

    That's precisely what the OP was asking ...
    OT: If we don't blow ourselves up soon because of some stupid war we might be here for quite some time. IMO there are too many things to consider here when answering the question.

    Pretty sure we'll do irreparable damage to the planet before we develop the technology needed to terraform/travel to other habitable planets. I give us around 100 years, probably a lot less at the rate we are going.

    Strange, because if I look at things, people generally survive longer in countries with more technology. And it's that exact technology that is developing incredibly fast. Technology won't kill us. We won't nuke ourselves to damnation. if anything, we won't be gone before our own sun kills us, though I reckon that chance is pretty low anyway. If it's not for some major cosmic disaster we can't do shit about, then we'll die a long time before the so called Big Freeze happens. So I'm guessing several millions of years is a good number to start with.
