Default First thoughts on D&D 4th edition

quite a few books got sent out early, and a PDF has been leaked online, so now a lot of people have seen the game, myself included.

It looks like an improvement over 3.5, but i have to say, my primary fear, that the classes would be homogenized by the use of "powers" in a negative way, was valid. While certainly different classes have powers that in general do different things, the fact that they all use the same mechanic(1/2 level + ability mod vs static defense), generally only are used for the same thing (dealing, preventing, or undoing damage in combat), and are used with predictable frequency (whenever you want, once per combat, and once per day).
