I think there will be third-party distributions for quite a while yet.
Apple can't prohibit outside apps on Macs because too many of them can't
be sandboxed. BBEdit is one of those, for example. So unless the rules
change, some software will always have to be side loaded. I do agree
though that new Mac users won't likely look elsewhere, but as they
become more experienced they might.
I'm still not happy with the situation, I don't like it at all. But I'm
not sure third-party installs will completely disappear either.
