Interesting answer... I would think your appeal is to NOT be "like" CC, not be like CC. Some of us have no CC. And besides, you don't need to be connected all the time to use PS or LR CC.
For me it is unacceptable to require internet connection for my photograhy programs. Yes, I usually have (pretty pathetic) internet, but sometimes I have none. I expect my photography tools to work either way. Clarification please. Only for community, updates, etc or all the time.
