vRealize Automation Guest OS IDs (VMware.VirtualCenter.OperatingSystem)

I always find my myself looking for these on VMware's SDK site when deploying vCAC at customers, so I decided to make them handy for easy use and hopefully searchable straight from the popular search engines too.

I've taken the liberty of extracting the most widely used properties. If you want to see the entire list, go to VMware's site here.
