The patch makes it a little clearer, but I'd prefer the OS to be "win32" rather than just "win". Win32 is the name of the API set that Python is built against - it's as close to an ABI for the operating system as we ever get.

(For contrast, WinRT is the only other API set, and it's not entirely compatible with Win32 even though there is some overlap. Python currently doesn't support WinRT except in the custom builds used for PTVS for IoT at - it's a bit tricky to get to the dl from there though...)
