ur right that , ASA will replace PIX, bcoz ASA supports IPS,IDS, can hav Anti-Virus module etc... PIX doesn't support these.

Roadmap looks good, but will be delayed till cisco comes out with a ASA model to replace PIX 525/535.

FWSM is a nice replacement, but again its for a compromise with switching & routing processing of a device.
