Description

On Windows 2012 R2, all versions come in as Windows 6.3 - .
While technically correct, most users don't understand what it means. This information appears to be pulling from the kernelmajversion fact. Instead we would like the operating system column (on the main hosts page) to use osmajversion fact, which would then show us 2012 R2 as the OS, instead of Windows 6.3.

  • Subject changed from Want to change default os fact in Operating System column on hosts page to Change imported Windows OSes to show human readable OS name from facts
  • Category changed from Web Interface to Importers

#7819 changed this as the major/minor has to be numeric, but the human-readable name can be stored in the description field instead, which will override the "6.3" on the host view.
