in thread Win32::TieRegistry and remote machines

This may be a bit off... but I was wondering, why not use Win32 module? It has the nice Win32::IsWinNT() and Win32::IsWin95(). I'm making a bit of assumption that Win32::IsWin95() would work with Win98 as well. I'm not sure. Anyways, just a suggestion - it may not fit your needs.

Good Luck!

Update: usual..assumption.. bad bad! Thanks tye!

    Because those only tell you about the local computer. The problem was to determine if a remote computer is running Win9x.

[Corion]: Yay. FF now has u2f built-in (behind an about:config setting), so using an USB token to sign in actually works :)
[Corion]: So, it's not all bad with the new FF :)
[holli]: 2factor is a bit too much for me. i just use passwords like jhbn8789q27312laks dmaw98^
[moritz]: isn't there also some about:config setting to enable the old plugin API?
[Discipulus]: indeed, only the logo is nicer
[Corion]: moritz: Hmm, I doubt so, as I think they moved away from XUL and other UI stuff, which was used by most plugins I used
[Corion]: holli: I'm trying it out with Github and so far I don't dislike it. It's basically like an extra key I press to log in, which is an OK flow for Github
[Corion]: I haven't tried out recovery in case of a broken USB key though (even though I have three such U2F tokens lying around here)
