GFI Network Monitor vs. Microsoft Operations Manager 2007

I have a  medium to large server enviroment that have a mix of Windows 2000, 2003 and Unix servers. To add to matters I have servers are a mix of HP (newer servers), Dell and IBM. I'm looking for a software application that will centralize the monitoring of all my server into one location. Do you think MOM or GFI would be a better pick?

As per my understading the MOM is better and very advanced if you monitor active directory environment. If you general monitor then GFI is easy and best.

The other application which refer is opmanager which is nother best monitoring software
I'd look at enterprise management software like nagios or opennms.

I would agree that GFI is a good overall product and is easy to use.  I have no personal experience of the others but I am sure if rindi has recommended it it will do the job.
