    Default Re: uniquly identifying a system

    Simple you use the getProperty function. In this example I get the OS name and store it in the String os, then in the main method I print the OS to the console

    public class GetOS {
    	public static String os = System.getProperty("os.name");
    	public static void main(String[] args) {
