Hi All,

I am trying to understand the code below. The foreach - what exactly is it looping through???

 $data = Get-WmiObject -Class Win32_OperatingSystem |  ForEach {
        New-Object PSObject -Property @{
            Computername = $env:computername
            OS = $_.Caption
            Version = $_.Version
            SystemDirectory = $_.systemdirectory
            Serialnumber = $_.serialnumber
            InstalledOn = ($_.ConvertToDateTime($_.InstallDate))            
            LastReboot = ($_.ConvertToDateTime($_.LastBootUpTime))
