How does a probe determine OS version to install on?

For example, the cdm probe has all the binaries to install on windows, linux, etc. But how does the probe determine which binary to use to install on that OS, ie how does the probe KNOW the OS is windows, linux, etc? Does it run a command to figure out what the OS is?
