|| We now use 'product_type' on 3.5+ and 'product' on 2.7, so we should be good.

It actually looks like we use `product_type` on Python 2.7.12, not `product`.

On Python 2.7.12, on Windows Server 2008 R2:

  >>> import sys
  >>> sys.getwindowsversion().product
  Traceback (most recent call last):
    File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module>
  AttributeError: 'sys.getwindowsversion' object has no attribute 'product'
  >>> sys.getwindowsversion().product_type

This would cause `platform.release()` to output '7' instead of '2008ServerR2'.

I don't think this issue is resolved.
