There is absolutely no need to create a VM if you are using Apples and are worried about future compatibility, my comment was directed more at heavyweight pro software users (not even most pro photographers) who do manage to see the time cost benefits of the fastest processors when they become available.
For more normal users Apples can boot almost anything post Intel processors, I happily run from USB sticks containing a complete OS and drivers when I want to, you can still run Rosetta and any ancient driver on a brand new Apple, I do for an old scanner I have. Second, photography is important enough to me to have a dedicated computer just for my images, I can keep that computer with CS6, LR4/5 and all the other image related software completely isolated from anything, even the internet. Heck a decent Mac Mini is a few hundred dollars and can keep your current software running indefinitely. Third, I used to run a VM and Parallels and it isn't worth the effort or performance hit, but I told you that in the thread you started about doing it.
I have been waiting for the Mac Pro announcement to see what the future brought, the smart answer, for Apple users like me and most other CC avoiders, is to get a current Mac Pro via refurbished or end of line, upgrade them as needed for pennies and they will run for years. The only "issue", eventually, might be running current versions of LR to keep up with new cameras RAW files if you don't want to do the free DNG thing.
The Chicken Lickin' hysteria that has surrounded the various Adobe announcements really is quite amusing. They can't come into your house and stop you using what you have already, what you have today will, for 90%+ people, work for a few years at least, the scene could well look very different at that time.
