$::operatingsystem is a fact to recognize the platform of a node. Is there a fact to identify different version of Windows operating system?

Thanks, but kernelrelease fact does not make difference between Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 since they have the same version 6.1. The same thing happens to Windows XP 64-bit and Windows Server 2003 (version 5.2).

I haven't used puppet on windows myself but kernelrelease should help here. See this link to map the release number to an actual operating system.
