        FULL PRODUCT VERSION :
        java version "1.6.0_31"
        Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.6.0_31-b05)

        ADDITIONAL OS VERSION INFORMATION :

        A DESCRIPTION OF THE PROBLEM :
        The JDK1.6.0 System.getProperty("os.name") doesn't get Windows 8's os.name correct. It should get "Windows 8" instead of "Windows NT (unknown)".

        STEPS TO FOLLOW TO REPRODUCE THE PROBLEM :
        Run the following code in Windows 8 Consumer Preview:

        public class SystemPropertyTest {

        public static void main(String[] args) {
        System.out.println(System.getProperty("os.name"));
        }

        }

        EXPECTED VERSUS ACTUAL BEHAVIOR :
        EXPECTED -
        System.getProperty("os.name") should return "Windows 8".
        ACTUAL -
        System.getProperty("os.name") returns "Windows NT (unknown)".

        REPRODUCIBILITY :
        This bug can be reproduced always.
