It's not an operating system. Irm stands for information rights management. It's just part of office 2003.
From here:
Microsoft Office Professional Edition 2003 provides information rights management (IRM) functionality to help organizations and employees protect and have greater control over digital information, such as confidential planning documents or financial reports. You can set policies that wield greater control over who can open, copy, print, or forward information created in Microsoft Office Word 2003, Microsoft Office Excel 2003, Microsoft Office PowerPointŪ 2003, and Microsoft Office OutlookŪ 2003.
I believe the launch date is the 21st of october. Not sure if all versions will have Irm, though.

I can imagine a flaw cropping up and deleting all the copies of one major report sometime. All of them disappearing off of a company's systems all over the country.

No, this is not an OS - an OS is required by the computer to give you a working interface on the computer.

Office 2003 is just a suite of productivity programs - it is not an OS.
