I installed 4.7 on a openSUSE 11.4 laptop and it's nice. The KDE announcement page claims it's a "one click install" but in reality, as with many things linux, it was many clicks (YAST conflicts) and no average-Joe user would have been able to do it. In that regard, I think it fails as an upgrade option for many KDE 4.6 or less users.

Yes, it lacks a lot of visual polish but is functional and helps rather than hinders.
