5.1.2600.0 was the original build number of Windows XP, and I suspect is a
placeholder until the required functionality is completed (very much like t=
class which returns the system drives is currently hard coded to "c:" and
"a:" for windows for now)

Okay, it's been a bit of a while since I pestered the list, so here I am wi=
another pesky question.

I know the System.Environment.OSVersion property is hard coded to 5.1.2600.0
(which PNET have copied) but I don't have a complete understanding of why
this is.

I was thinking that some OSes like GNU/Linux don't have definitive version
numbers (although I guess the kernel build gets close), but since a number =
OSes do have definitive version numbers, and I right in assuming the value
might be retrieved from an internal call in due course? =20
