This is true. So perhaps where I said:
TOTALLY DIFFERENT 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 COMPLETELY THE SAME
It's more like:
TOTALLY DIFFERENT 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 COMPLETELY THE SAME
But it's the sort of "same" that, say, Third and Fourth Edition GURPS Psionics have: Yes, the powers have the same names and some things are still rated in levels, but the levels mean something totally different, the ranges and effects are vastly divergent, the skills work very differently, the point costs are nothing alike, . . .
