Apple have already started to remove optical drives from their macs, although you can purchase a plug in optical drive I guess it wont be long before Mac OS doesn't support this.

Not just Apple, lots of manufacturers are doing this - it adds weight, adds bulk, costs more and for most isn't needed.  Laptop drives are also somewhat unreliable so I bet the manufacturers will be glad to see the back of them.

As for stopping support, I doubt that would happen since most drives are simply usb plug/play devices.

OnOne have issued their statement regarding CC and it seems they're looking at stepping up to the challenge of providing users with alternatives to Photoshop's more advanced features from with within Lightroom or Aperture.

I've tried OnOne's software and it was woefully slow, when it wasn't crashing. They're not a challenger to Adobe, from my experience.
