The beta isn't complete, true, but if it runs fine in beta there's a strong chance the final release and subsequent updates will all run fine. A lot of people in the hack community reckon we are safe for another 5 or so years. This whole moving to ARM chips talk is probably only for mobile devices like macbooks. Since the new Mac Pro is on Intel. Obviously, if Apple creates something that does suddenly stop new installs then people can still use working OS versions for years later on their hacks. The T2 chip, will probably make things difficult but there are some very clever and dedicated hackers that will just see that as a fun challenge to get past it. Everything else so far has been bypassed.
