If you currently run a Drupal 6 site, you have the choice of upgrading to Drupal 7 or Drupal 8. The version of Drupal you choose for your upgrade will depend on how complex your site is, what contributed modules you need, and other factors. Many modules have been built in to Drupal 8. For example, Views and a WYSIWYG editor come as a part of Drupal 8, which means that some sites can move to Drupal 8 much sooner.

On the other hand Drupal 7 remains fully supported, so Drupal 6 sites can also update to Drupal 7 using the core update feature when that is a better fit. Drupal 7 is estimated to be supported until Drupal 9 is released, or later(will be provided with security updates till end of 2018).

Should Drupal 7 owners worry?

Drupal 7 could be around for another 4 years as per the Official Drupal release cycle.
