I much prefer Casino Royale to any of the Bourne movies. But I prefer the Bourne movies to Quantum of Solace.
I don't think they're trying to turn Bond into Bourne. Bond has always been more fantastical. Bond is more akin to superheroes, always hunting down villains and stopping them. The villains of Bond are a threat to the world.
Whereas Bourne is more self centered. His conflict is with the people that are after him. He isn't stopping villains after world domination.
As far as the editing, Quantum attempted Bourne editing, but failed in my opinion. Bourne did it quite well, whereas Quantum did it quite pathetically. Just my opinion.
But editing alone doesn't make it similar either in my opinion.
