I've now read about os.type, and have a view questions:

- is it possible to distinguish OS/2, and if not what will it return?

- What would be useful commands for removing a file or directory on

- What would be useful commands for viewers on MacOSX? Ideally something
  which reflects the settings of the user, e.g. whether (s)he wants
  Preview or Adobe Reader for PDF files?
