Replying to @BenMarks @AntonKril
Jesus Christ, everybody struggled to wrap their head around Knockout in M2, blogged about it, did presentations... and it’s being deprecated once devs finally started to understand it. It will be hard for everybody to migrate from their Lima-based themes.

Amen. Merchants are already struggling to keep up with upgrades and frustrated. Telling merchants on 2.1 / 2.2 that used traditional theming they MUST rebuild their frontend is a bad take.

Magento is a tech company and wants to move fast. Merchants are not primarily tech focused, the tech just supports their business, which is to sell online. Rapid iteration is not inline with their needs.

To clarify: it is too early to even discuss the removal date. One thing is defined: it will not be soon.

To rephrase: PWA Studio GA: "it will not be soon"

So timeline is following: PWA studio (soon), full pwa storefront (a bit later), deprecation of luma/blank, ..... removal of luma/blank

does that just mean the removal of the theme or the whole “traditional“ frontend rendering infrastructure? Aka I am not able to use old themes any more b/c core does not support them any more...

The current Venia frontend loader still makes use of the layout engine and requirejs for the initial payload. I'd assume the old render engine and the blank theme stay throughout 2.* if for no other reason than ecosystem compatibility
