Not to be argumentative here, but talking about a future product...

... as compared to an existing product is really putting the cart before the horse; Microsoft has been known to over-state feature capabilities which turn out disappointing in real-world operation. I'm not saying this future product is guaranteed to fail, but rather stating that you're leaving yourself open for derision if it does fail. Rather, you should compare what is to what is... like to like and express your hope that the coming product meets your expectations.
I'm not going to say the iPhone 5, for instance, is going to **** away all competitors because quite honestly I don't know what improvements will be in the final product. Just remember how poorly Vista fared after 7 years of Microsoft claiming it would **** away all previous versions. Win7 has resolved most of Vista's issues, but it's still not as good as it could have been or as good as Microsoft claimed. It is, however, the best Windows yet.

In other words, I'll believe it's better when I see it, and not before.
