> Why is this function even exposed on Linux?

It is a deliberate design choice of the platform module. mac_ver(), win32_ver() and linux_distribution() are available on all platforms.

mac_ver() says "entries which cannot be determined are set to ''. All tuple entries are strings."

Maybe it should be better explained in the doc.
