In this particular transition, I'm not so sure, C++17 is really the
completion of C++11 and C++14, so those who did go to C++11, might want to
upgrade sooner than you think. Also, MSVC (current and eminent release) is
now in much better shape than it ever was. So those people are certainly
motivated. Additionally, contrary to the past, the upgrade (full monty) is
free (Community Edition) for many. Equally so, on Windows, Clang/LLVM is
now up to scratch, certainly with the release of 5.0, planned for 23rd of

Anecdotically, at CERN-Institute (some of the most advanced scientists)
they won't upgrade from what I understood, as they choose to stay on C++03.
