Indeed. It's not spoon fed to the audience in the first movie that programs look like the users who created them. It just happens to be a matter of fact that the audience adapts to.
In the second movie, I did think it was a bit self-flattering/self-aggrandizing of Flynn to say he made Clu in "his own image".
