'The new xyz' tends to be error-prone IMO, since what is 'new' today, gets
older every day and some day it's the 'old' one.
Of course, this picture does not fully apply to the above situation, I know,
but I would like to avoid such phrasing if possible.

Also, 'system' is a term which is used for different instances, like the
real hardware PC (like in 'PC system'), the operating system (like Debian,
Windows ...) or virtual operating systems...
Thus, users might get confused, and in fact I read an installation report
(not in the Debian BTS), where this was mentioned.
