screenOS or junOS ?

thinking about the differences between ssg and srx juniper firewall devices. my main focus is on stability and usual features like VPN stuff. srx devices might deliver some more and better features (on the other hand i.e. lack of ipv6 support (but announced)); for me it seems like the ssg devices are more stable and i know that they can do what i need to do.  ssg5 i.e. has been started last year, the end of life of ssg series is far away (hope so). the administration stuff (console, web) has changed completely in junOS – another reason to stay on ssg devices.  anyway: i`m pretty sure in a few years junOS will be the choice …

right now i`m using a SSG550M / planning to replace several linux VPN gateways with SSG5 boxes
