That section is a tip on how to kill process on Windows for Python prior to 2.7 and 3.2.
3.1 end of support was April 2012 and 2.6 was October 2013, so that hasn't been needed for supported versions of Python for more than 5 years. Beside not being needed anymore for a long time, when I read it with the eyes of a Python profane, it makes Python looks bad, like a language from the pasts with warts you need to circumvent.
Let's delete that.
