Regarding this, which edition of Shadowrun is best?

Shadowrun (2nd Edition) is my favorite edition. I've played 2nd, 3rd, and 4th. In 2nd edition Deckers and Riggers had very different skills and abilities - later editions tended to blur the line between those professions. Combat is very deadly - whoever shoots first is likely to live, if you are too slow, you will die.
