The CentOS Project is pleased to announce the immediate availability of CentOS 7 for x86_64, including images for docker, and various cloud providers. There are many fundamental changes in this release, compared to previous releases of CentOS. Notably the inclusion of systemd, Gnome3, and a default filesystem of XFS. For more information about what makes CentOS 7 stand out, please see our release notes.

CentOS 6 can be upgraded to 7, but that functionality is still being tested.

That is true, and if you have just basic needs and want stability, than yes.

But soon you might find yourself in the situation that you will add custom repositories because you just want some application or newer version or feature...

So yes, if you are sure about your future needs, and if you need stability, go for it. Otherwise, Arch / Mint / Ubuntu / Fedora / Mageia are just better choices.
