Function definition: (Copy & paste into FileMaker's Edit Custom Function window)
This function should return the system platform (OSX PPC, OSX Intel, Windows) and then attempt to determine the O/S's name (XP, Tiger, etc). This will work already with Leopard, but I didn't have a Vista machine avaiable to add support for vista.

I know Colt and I doubt he's working in FileMaker anymore (the above function will likely not get updated anytime soon). For an updated version of this function, use GetPlatformName():
