We are proud to announce SystemCenterCentral.com, the site to visit for "Everything System Center".
SystemCenterCentral.com was founded by three System Center community members; Pete Zerger, Rory McCaw and Maarten Goet. SystemCenterCentral.com is a community initiative that will combine a number of existing Internet properties under a single community site and strive to become the leading community landing page for all System Center technologies.
As Microsoft continues to invest in its System Center brand, we feel that there is a need for a community site that focuses exclusively on the technologies included in this suite of products. Unlike other community sites, the motivation behind this site is to continue to give back to the community at large, one of the reasons why each of the founders have been awarded the Microsoft MVP title.
The official launch of SystemCenterCentral.com will be at the Microsoft Management Summit (MMS) in Las Vegas, NV, the week of April 27 to May 2, 2009. SystemCenterCentral.com has a dedicated community area where you can check out the site, get more information or become a member!
At this time you will find blogs, where well-known MVPs will start blogging in the coming days, a download area, a community "pack catalog" and forums. Later in May, we will be launching a wiki and a ‘community feedback' platform and other exciting features.

What does this mean exactly? Please explain.
I’m hearing from a lot of folks in the System Center community who would like to give comment about the
Are you kidding me??? Rod Trent (MVP) has been running MyItForum for 10 years now and it has been THE premier community for all things in the Systems Center space. Ron Crumbaker (MVP) is also a leader of the site as well as many members of the MyItForum community have been MVP's for quite a while and several of them have gone on to successful careers in Microsoft. Who from the site mentioned has gone on to a career in Microsoft ??? Why not support a community that has been supporting you for 10 years rather than other sites that try to mimic the success that MyItForum proven.
Please do not make "obviously" misleading statements as I have seen in this post. and highlight below

I welcome your feedback
I personally welcome the SystemCenterCentral initiative. Pete, Rory and Maarten already contributed great System Center related content on SystemCenterForum.org and Techlog.org. So instead of several separate places there is now one new place to find or contribute your System Center related content. And you can still use myITforum if you want, I use several places to find and contribute my System Center content.
“Why not support a community that has been supporting you for 10 years rather than other sites that try to mimic the success that MyItForum proven.” Why cannot there be several communities exist side-by-side and I don’t see why I cannot support more than one community. The community is not one place on the web in my opinion, it’s everybody who’s interested in sharing information about a subject they are interested in. That’s why I’m using Twitter, Facebook, my personal weblog, maillists and many more to be part of this great System Center Community.
