If 775 is dead now or not is a debate for another forum.

The socket 775 will die??
Yup. It is pretty much already dead as Intel has replaced all but the Celeron line-up with CPUs on newer sockets. You will still be able to get Socket 775 CPUs and motherboards for some time, but it's definitely a dying socket.

Nowadays Intel reserve high-end cpu for Socket 1366 and mid-range and low range cpu for S1156. Amd had choice this strategies in the past (939 and 754)
Intel has a pretty silly socket lineup right now and for no very good reason, in my opinion. The two parts that make sense are the dual-CPU Xeon 5500s on LGA1366 and the Core i3, i5, and Pentium series on LGA1156. LGA1366 and its three-channel memory makes sense on LGA1366, and the LGA1156 platform is more suitable for desktop use. The i7 socket lineup right now is downright silly, though. There are both LGA1366 and LGA1156 Core i7s with pretty much identical features. There are also Socket 1156 and 1366 single-CPU Xeons as well to add confusion into the mix. I would have put all of the desktop CPUs on LGA1156 and just beefed up the PCIe controller on the i7 series to give 2 x16 lanes instead of 1x16/2x8. I would have kept the single-CPU Xeons all on LGA1366 to have it be the "server" platform instead of having both the Xeon 3400 (LGA1156) and 3500 (LGA1366) series.
AMD's socket lineup had a bit of duplication in the past as there was some overlap between Socket 754 and 939, but that at least made a bit more sense. Socket 754 came first and was AMD's desktop and laptop socket. AMD later decided to introduce Socket 939 and phase out 754 desktop CPU production for everything besides Semprons, so the overlap was smaller and shorter-lived than the LGA1366/1156 overlap will be.

Quote:some overlap between Socket 754 and 939
You forgot Socket 940, it was in the mix around that time period too.
I thought about putting Socket 940 in there, but Socket 940 was almost exclusively a server socket. Only two desktop chips were ever released in that socket- the Athlon 64 FX-51 and FX-53, and the FX-53 was also released in Socket 939 guise as well. As a result, Socket 940 wasn't really "in the mix" for desktop CPUs very much.
