jQuery(document).ready(function () {
 console.log(navigator.appVersion);
 
}
 

jQuery(document).ready(function () {
 
    var OSName = "Unknown OS";
    if (navigator.appVersion.indexOf("Win") != -1) OSName = "Windows";
    else if (navigator.appVersion.indexOf("Mac") != -1) OSName = "MacOS";
    else if (navigator.appVersion.indexOf("X11") != -1) OSName = "UNIX";
    else if (navigator.appVersion.indexOf("Linux") != -1) OSName = "Linux";
 
    console.log('Your OS is: ' + OSName);
}
 

Both of the above code will work..
