  • Oh, but they have! The property already exists: SPFarm.Products

    PS C:\> (Get-SPFarm).Products
    
    Guid

    9ff54ebc-8c12-47d7-854f-3865d4be8118
    b7d84c2b-0754-49e4-b7be-7ee321dce0a9

    In this case "9ff..." is SharePoint Foundation 2013 (which would always be present even with Server) and "b7d..." is SharePoint Server 2013 Enterprise.

    Here are all of the product GUIDs:

    9FF54EBC-8C12-47D7-854F-3865D4BE8118 SharePoint Foundation 2013

    I got these GUIDs from How to: Detect the installed SKU of SharePoint 2013

  • In SharePoint Server, you can determine the edition in Central Administration by going to Upgrade and Migration -> Convert farm license type. It will list the edition, for example: SharePoint Server with Enterprise Client Access License

    I do not know whether this page exists in SharePoint Foundation, though if it doesn't I suppose you can assume it's Foundation and not Server ;)

  • Microsoft needs to add a property to the SPFarm class so you can determine what you are licensed for more easily. They provide a Build Version property which is nice, but technically SharePoint Foundation and SharePoint Enterprise are the same "Build Version."
