Well, it's natural that Avalon would be more advanced in scope than Quartz. After all, it's slated for the future and is only part of a developer release where Quartz is here and now and has been since 2001. Longhorn releases when? If Avalon only had feature parity, that would be disapointing.

The question is, what will Quartz's capabilities be by the time Longhorn ships? That's something only time will tell.
