The code sample demonstrates the following tasks related to platform detection:

1. Detect the name of the current operating system.   (e.g. "Microsoft Windows 7 Enterprise")
2. Detect the version of the current operating system.  (e.g. "Microsoft Windows NT 6.1.7600.0")
3. Determine whether the current operating system is a 64-bit operating system.
4. Determine whether the current process is a 64-bit process.
5. Determine whether an arbitrary process running on the system is 64-bit.
