    This is an easy one for you Powershell guns, I don't use powershell too much and I'm not across it as much as I'd like...

    so if I run the command

    GWMI Win32_OperatingSystem | select name

    I get the below

    "Microsoft Windows Server 2008 R2 Enterprise |C:\Windows|\Device\Harddisk0\Partition1"

    What if I only want Microsoft Windows Server 2008 R2 Enterprise. How do I do it?

    p.s. Yes I understand there is another property 'caption' that only has 'Microsoft Windows Server 2008 R2 Enterprise'. This is more about the process of manipulating output.

    Thanks all.

    I've created a short script showing different options to extract the desired text from the property.
