I don't see the property actually being used anywhere these days. No 
idea what it may have been used for other than printing the property for 
information (there's a Java2D demo that does that).

Is there an API on Linux that will provide the information? Both Solaris 
and Windows have a "sys info" call that can provide this information. 
But Linux sysinfo is something different.
