Post a Lr "version timeline" because software title words are intermixed between Classic and CC. CC is now considered "new" and Classic never had "Classic" included in the name of the software until the latest version of Lr "classic" when the previous version of "Classic" is actually Lightroom CC.

Adobe has certainly (and deliberately?) confused things with its branding. A simple way to keep things straight in discussions is to use the version number shown in Help > System Info -- 5.7,6.14, 2015.12, 7.1 all unambiguously identify which version we're talking about.  Then we don't have to remember the label du jour that the marketers find so important.

IMHO it's clear. 
Since CC 2018 "normal" Lightroom is Lightroom Classic CC, and a new, web based app was born as Lightroom CC. 
Well, I agree, that would be much better if they leave Lightroom as Lightroom and the new app was called Lightroom Net or something like that...
