"Most" people probably don't, but speaking anecdotally I know a number 
that have. EL6 was "just working" during EL7's instability, and a lot of 
folks chose to hold out for EL8 (modularity weirdness aside). Many of 
them, myself included, used the EOL as the push to upgrade with the 8.3 
release around the corner, taking a larger than normal forklift because 
"it was the right thing to do" for future-proofing if an upgrade was 
going to happen.

For that leap of faith, CentOS users are being punished with worse 
planned support than the previous release will be getting. That's one 
reason for the sting -- certainly one reason for me.
