Python on Windows can now can understand that it's on Windows 8.1 and Windows Server 2012 R2, but platform.py hasn't been updated, and claims it's on "post2012Server":

>>> import platform
>>> print(platform.win32_ver())
('post2012Server', '6.3.9600', '', 'Multiprocessor Free')

The function win32_ver (which most of the platform library relies upon) should be changed, to include Windows 8.1 and Windows Server 2012 R2. I've attached a patch file that does that

We're already tracking this at #19143, where I've got a future proofed version of the function. Thanks for the prod though, I'll try and get some action going again.
