I do not think that OOP will go away soon.

It is usefull because it allows you to model the world around.
All programs, that we write are ment to solve real worlds problems. Since the real world is created from objects which have relations and communicate OOP is good tool, because it allows the dev to reflect the real world.

This also explains that maybe for real time or other problems OO is not at all useful.

regarding functional programming - it can be compatible with the OO approach. FP tries to eliminate the global state, puts accents to concepts such as functional composition, but there is nothing which would make it incompatible with OO, is there?

So I think we have to wait, if some future concept will substitute OO, maybe it will, but I think it will not get rid of entities, or objects, or whatever you want to call it...
