I read CSS Grid is the new native CSS framework. Will all those well-known CSS frameworks become obsolete?

CC: Nah. The well-known CSS frameworks do a heck of a lot more than layout. They are more like component libraries. The parts of them that are exclusively for laying out columns will become obsolete, just in the sense that using CSS Grid will be easier, faster, and more robust, but even then I doubt those parts will be removed. If anything, the class names that control layout in those frameworks will use CSS Grid to do what they do. We saw that happen in a number of frameworks when Flexbox support got more robust.
CSS Grid This is a game-changer, but it’s not likely to put other frameworks out of business any time soon
