This new System Centre 2012 is becoming a nightmare to get clarification.

Planning on changing over to OVS-ES; the desktop licensing I fully understand.
Was just on the verge of getting SCVMM and DPM with Software Assurance (initially to purchase outright), but now adding to OVS-ES.

Trying to get clarification if and when System Centre 2012 is released would we get the 2010 variants of SCVMM and DPM? even though they will be then part of the SC2012 Standard 'and' Datacentre components?
Would we be forced to pay extra? for the additional compenents that we may have no need for?

Is the only way to cover all scenarios would be to get System Centre Management Suite initially? even though we only want SCVMM and DPM?

Aaaaaaaaaaah!
