So has Lightroom CC changed it's name to Lightroom Desktop? Or just Lightroom? (You name it both ways in your post). Suggestion to Marketing Dept: Lightroom Classic should have been named "Lightroom Desktop" (to keep people from freaking out). Then Lightroom CC could be just "Lightroom", or better yet "Lightroom Mobile" (same as the device apps). Presto! Problem solved? It's not too late to do the right thing?

It's dropped the CC (along with the rest of the CC apps) so it's now just Lightroom. Lightroom desktop refers to the Windows/Mac clients, Lightroom mobile for the iOS/Android clients. Lightroom Classic remains Lightroom Classic, but without the extra CC.

As to the naming choices... no comment! Since it remains confusing, you'll continue to see a whole load of stuff in brackets like Lightroom (the cloud-based photo service) and Lightroom Classic (the traditional folder-based desktop app).
