Operating system support and computer obsolescence is not so much of a problem as it used to be. For example Windows 10 will be supported until 2025, according to the vendor.
I agree that if you are going to create a lot of content that takes significant effort, doing it in a format that is not locked up to one vendor is important. But if you are just cutting out a few shapes it might not matter.

Simple Susan, I think you can make stencils with any of the machines, although some can handle thicker materials than others. I have cut mylar stencil material with my Portrait (not the new version 2 one) - the thin type they sell on ebay for making cake icing stencils.
When watching videos you need to check how old they are as there are several models of the main brands eg Silhouette cameo is now version 3 so an old video comparing version 2 with something else might be misleading.
