    what OS oracle is running on ?

    Hi,
    Is there any dictionary view/or any way by which i can find out whether my Oracle is running on which operating system.
    I have access to all the data dictionary tables; but not to the OS. I use some third party tool to connect to many remote servers.
    Could somebody tell me about this...

    Regards
