I see specifically it is using POSIX::uname, even though the documentation
says it is very unreliable. I would advise not using it.
Get name of current operating system.
($sysname, $nodename, $release, $version, $machine) =
Note that the actual meanings of the various fields are not that well
standardized, do not expect any great portability. The $sysname might be
the name of the operating system, the $nodename might be the name of the
host, the $release might be the (major) release number of the operating
system, the $version might be the (minor) release number of the operating
system, and the $machine might be a hardware identifier. Maybe.
