That might not give quite the results the OP wanted, since $HOSTNAME
returns the name of the host and not the OS running on said host.
For example, on a Linux box here at work,
"Running on $HOSTNAME" reads as: "Running on frogger", where as
"Running on `uname -o`" reads as: "Running on GNU/Linux"
Just my $.02 based on the statements in the original post.
