Description

The OS names reported by Facter aren't the actual operating system names, so we should have a separate label/description to the ID that Facter uses.

e.g. "RedHat" should be "Red Hat Enterprise Linux", "Scientific" should be "Scientific Linux" etc.

Can we use RHEL instead of long variant?

#4 Updated by Dominic Cleal over 6 years ago

Yeah, it'd certainly fit on the screen better. I was wondering if the LSB descriptions could be used by default, though that's the "long form", but at least let users edit the label/description.
