We need to collect system info about PCs in our network
We use Script like this

get-wmiobject win32_operatingsystem | format-list *


Some of our PCs have Windows Embedded, so the System Dialog (Start / Control panel / System) shows as system the following string

"Windows Embedded point of Service".

See also the Screenshot.

But how to get this string programmatically, for example using WMI?

If we check the properties of win32_operatingsystem for such PCs,
then we have
OSProductSuite = 64 = Windows XP Embedded is installed
OSType = 18 = WINNT
SuiteMask = 336 = 256+64+16 Single User + Embedded NT + Terminal

See the explanation of values here:

Where is the info (where is a hint on this) that this is not just "EMBEDDED"   but a "Point of Service"?
