Moving toward Lightning Adoption: Salesforce Classic "end of life"?

Adoption strategies toward Lightning interface would be expedited if I were able to communicate clearly what the sunsetting/end-of-life roadmap is for Salesforce Classic. I'm compiling info from Google searches, but really interested to hear if anyone can point me to definitive info on:
  1. Official slowing or stoppage of new Salesforce Classic platform upgrades and enhancements
  2. Specific info indicating Company's formal strategy to abandon Classic and migrate all instances to Lightning only. 
  3. Timeline
Anything else that could facilitate my own adoption strategy. What I get from some users is, "If it ain't broke..."

Thanks

Salesforce has been very clear that all new features are being built for lightning.

Salesforce has not announced an end-of-life for Classic, and I suspect it is a long way away.  The motivation for migrating to Lightning should be about using the functionality available in Lightning.   There are a ton of features that are only Lightning features, and will not be available in Classic.

How about the issue of whether Salesforce Classic will continue to see releases that are on par with what we've seen in the past -- or will the seasonal releases be focussed on enhancements to Lightning? Or both.

There are stil many features that are not available in Lightning. This makes administration via Lightning frustrating since you have to keep switching between presentation.  It would be nice to have a roadmap of when exisitng features will migrate to Lightning.
