What if I do nothing and just keep CNX2 v2.4.6?

I've been reading the posts about the apparent end of support for NX2 and all the confusion that seems to have surfaced. I do not pretend to understand it all (DNG, sidecar files, etc.). Nor do I understand what it may mean for me in the future.

I recently upgraded to NX2 2.4.6 which according to what I've read will be the last upgrade Nikon will make to the software. So I have the most current update.

I have been using NX since 2006 and I've been happy with the results with the NEF files of my old D200, D300, D300s and now with my D800.

What might change if I just continue to use NX2 v2.4.6 with my D800 (which is just under a year old)? It will still produce the same NEF image and NX2 will still be able to meet just about all of my post processing needs. And, as my skill with the amazing D800 increases, I find that I am getting more images correct "in camera" which means less extensive use of NX2. And NX2 allows me to make edits to a preselected region of the image.

So why can't I just keep NX2 and not worry about moving to Lightroom or Photoshop or Capture One? Am I missing something?
