PHP7 has better chances of being adopted faster than previous PHP versions.
The advantage of speed is always welcome and besides now it's easier than ever to run multiple versions of PHP at once. PHP Incompatibility of applications created on earlier versions was the main problem with earlier migrations in PHP.

Vesides, PHP7 does not bring such a learning curve as PHP 5.2 or PHP 4.

In my opinion, I feel very optimistic on a faster migration to PHP7.

Well there are some backwards incompatible changes like dropping the mysql extension.

People were warned many years ago but I guess many will wait for when they have to to migrate their code and it is not as simple as adding an i to mysql.
