You need to consider that the article is written by a services company that wants it dead. Of course it will find all sort of reasons (some far from the truth: Xamarin developers hate it, Rider is the editor, really?!) that is dead and point you to the direction it wants - from their website, flutter and native.

Viewing the issue objectively, I think the future of Xamarin is in-line with the future of .NET - unifications - and it will not just die (as some might want). If that is called Xamarin, MAUI or whatever, that's just marketing term.
Obviously, things change as they evolve and some things might be dropped but I highly doubt it Xamarin Forms based apps will just stop working or won't be migrated.

It comes down to: would you trust Microsoft or foresightmobile for the future of Xamarin? I bet on Microsoft.
