After shaky beta, new MOM moves to RC1

Microsoft has said in the past that Operations Manager would eventually centrally monitor all System Center products, which include Configuration Manager 2007, Virtual Machine Manager 2007 and Data Protection Manager 2007. It would also centralize remote access management for IT.
