platform.popen() is deprecated since Python 3.3: bpo-11377. Calling the function emits a DeprecationWarning and the function is documented as being deprecated.

The function is documented in the "Win95/98 specific":
https://docs.python.org/dev/library/platform.html#win95-98-specific

Python 3.5 dropped Windows XP support. I don't think that Python 2.7 still support Windows 98. So it's time to remove support for this old OS.

Python 3 now has a os.popen() function:
