I would think these companies with vitualization products for the Mac better find solution or that part of their business dies.
... so it's been a year since the last rumour post...
Well, much of it isn't a "rumor" anymore.
VMware has a free "tech preview" of Fusion running a VM on Apple Silicon, but it is only to run Linux and they have said that they will absolutely not be supporting Windows:
Parallels supports virtualizing Windows on Apple Silicon using Microsoft's "Windows 11 on ARM Insider Preview". The latter is not a full version of Windows, and it is unclear if Microsoft will continue to develop it or allow a license to Parallels to use it. For now, it seems, people using the Windows 11 on ARM insider Preview within Parallels are technically doing so illegally.

My 2018 MacBook Air is about ready for replacement, but I have no use for a glorified iPad that can't run Windows in any guise. I really wish Apple would have considered this use case when formulating their product lineup, and in particular, their Pro line.
To my knowledge, there is no version of Visio for the Macintosh of any description. That's probably because there are a HUGE number of diagramming products already for the Mac. In fact, a gentleman on another discussion list created a huge flow chart to show all the alternatives and their strengths and weaknesses. Here is the file:
somewhat curious already... visio had a huge collection of stencils for HW platforms, switches, servers etc,
probably pushing luck if I am hoping that these tools can re-use the visio stencils.
