Obviously, I wasn't clear enough...

My premise is not that "the first edition is the best", it is that "the
first edition is the bestthe game designer can do, AND IT IS LIKELY TO BE
IMPROVED IN THE 2nd EDITION, but when there is a radical change (like a 3rd
Edition) - you can expect it is an inferior product..."

PS I don't actually want to start an off topic duiscussion about the
pros/cons of second/third edition traveller/shadowrun etc, but if you want a
discussion we can take it off list...
