Just to give some statistic, in Debian we have >80 binary packages that check if sys.platform is linux2. However, it appears to me that vast majority of them is broken anyway, because what they really mean to check is:
- is this a non-Windows sytem? or
- is this a UNIX-like system? or
- is this a system with GNU userland?
