Not by a mile, my friend.
I like C&C, 4E, AD&D 1/2, and 3rd Edition, to an extent.

Liking one doesn't mean disliking another.

Then you will definitely want to play C&C as opposed to OSRIC/AD&D, as all of those subsystems and the descending armor class just gets even more confusing, beer after beer.

C&C: The RPG for Drunks.

Or The PBRPG?
