Is Adobe preparing a migration of LightRoom CC towards a "web-only" application ?

The new "webish" interface and some missing features of the import screen makes me wonder if Adobe is not going slowly to force their customer base towards "web-only" application.
The suppression of the Eject feature could be a clue as most computers won't execute such an instruction sent through the net.

The excuse of simplifying the experience for new users does not stand one second.

We all know Adobe is not cheap, but we decided to switch to their apps BECAUSE we needed more power and reliability. In addition to money, we all had to invest a lot of time in learning and it is part of our great experience with the products (by the way, 1000 thank you Julieanne Kost and your great videos) !

Adobe moves to include mobile devices and Internet in the workflow possibilities are great, BUT SHOULD NOT lead to abandon the basics : we want a powerful and reliable software which is working on our desktop without been obliged to be hooked to Internet.

The last update failed miles away from this exigence !

Adobe : your apps are great and LR did meet the users expectations so far, don't mess around with us, privileging some unclear marketing views instead of hearing your customer base , we deserve better.

Sincerely yours

By the way, obviously I share the general opinion : you must restore all the features you suppress from the Import panel : personally I am missing the Eject features (I corrupted one of my expensive fast writing camera card by trying to erase the files with Explorer) but even more the display of the file names and date of shooting on ALL thumbnails as it helps me importing easily only the desired pictures.
