Lightroom Classic: Needs to be reliable and fast. Forget the cloud. Make the basic service reliable and fast.

We need for LR Classic to be reliable and fast. Please stop wasting your precious resources on a cloud based version of LR.   Cloud is a nice-to-have, at best.   But without speed and reliability you got NOTHING. 

Every time I see the phrase "Lightroom CC" my stomach turns knowing that those same people that built that COULD have been spending their time making the basic "Classic" service fast and reliable.

Sad situation.

Could not agree more. New classic is a disaster.

I completely agree!  I don't care if it's in the cloud, or local.  I just want it to work!  I have not "upgraded" to any of the new options because of  a.) I can't keep them all straight, and b.) all the bugs reported by the user community.  I have just under 90,000 images going back 10 years.  At the moment, everything is working right, so I'm living with the status quo.
