CentOS-7 updates until June 30, 2024

Is there any reason why anyone would still be installing CentoOS6 on a

I have not had any trouble running anything on CentoOS 7  that ran on 
CentOS 6.

Is there any reason why someone would want to upgrade Cloudstack on a 
Centos6 installation where upgrading to Centos 7 would be a problem.

It would certainly simplify documentation/instructions if one does not 
have to sort through /etc/init.d... and systemctl ... at every step that 
involves system functions.
