For Workstation OS's (XP Pro, XP Pro x64, and Vista) I do it like this.

SELECT * FROM Win32_OperatingSystem WHERE Version = '5.1.2600' OR Version = 
'5.2.3790' OR Version = '6.0.6000'


To get around the Windows 2000 problem what you can do is create a window 
security group and add all the Windows 2000 machine accounts (machine$) to that 
group you want excluded.  On the GPO, Deny Apply GPO to this security group.  
Alternatively, you would have to put the w2k boxes in a separate OU and block 
the GPO.

Sorry, hit sent before I wanted.....
 
Can I just use the filter below and add Windows 2000 Professional to it so the 
GO only runs against machines that have Windows 2000 Pro or XP on them?
 
Root\CimV2; Select * from Win32_OperatingSystem where Caption = "Microsoft 
Windows XP Professional"
Thanks.
Craig

I have a GPO I want to run all my machines except machines running "server". Is 
creating a GPO WMI filter and linking it to the GPO the easiest way to 
accomplish this? I know filters will not apply to machines running Windows 2000 
(Or so I read) the GO would run anyway, and some machines are running 2000 
Server so would be the best way to have this GO not run against and ever 
changing list of host running some version of 'Server"
Thanks for your opinions
