Summary: Use Windows PowerShell to find what version of Windows you are running.

Hey, Scripting Guy! Question How can I use Windows PowerShell to find the version of Windows that is installed on a group of computers?
           To be safe, I need the command to be compatible with Windows PowerShell  2.0.

Hey, Scripting Guy! Answer Use the Get-WmiObject cmdlet and query the Win32_OperatingSystem WMI class:
