It's about wattage. The higher voltage tools have less amperage. I am running 18 volts with a 9 amp hour battery. The 60 volt tools are only 3 amp hours. Keep in mind that Milwaukee rates their voltage under load, and most of the others rate unloaded. They all use the same 18650 battery@3.7 volts. The M18 uses 3 sets of five to get 18v. DeWalt runs all 15 in series to get "60". Its the same thing as wiring an electric motor 240 vs. 480. Double voltage, half the amperage, and half the conductor size. I know the gen1 will beat any that I have put it up against, including all Snap-on, Makita and DeWalt 18v.

  Milwaukee is debuting their new 18V 12AH battery along with some new tools including a cordless Super Sawzall, tablesaw, chainsaw, enhanced drills.  The new chainsaw is on my short list.  I love my big 1/2" Milwaukee impact but my most used is the 18V 3/8" Fuel impact.  It's really handy.  Milwaukee's 12V cordless lineup is pretty impressive too.  Lots of power in lightweight tools.
  I haven't used a corded power tool in a long time.

I've just been reading up on those tools. Milwaukee has said they are committed to forward and backward compatibility. I saw that a number of their tools won't accept the new 12.0 pack, but that they will be offering an update kit for free. I guess they are committed.  :)

I'm keeping my eye on the chainsaw availability.
