No need to install anything:

A 'System Monitor' is not what one would expect to be the source for what
operating system is installed... it just happens to include this tab because it
was apparently not available elsewhere and got stuffed into that tool.
Do you open the Task Manager as the primary source for info about which OS you
have installed in the Windows world? No, you open the System control panel (the
most centralized source of information regarding the system and hardware that
'About this computer' is sensible. Looking for your OS version in a system
monitor is not (it just happens to be there).
