I have to agree with msg389225, I use windows 7 on my dev machine as well as I use some programs and devices that unfortionatly do not work on windows 10 so update is not possible, now it would be realy anoying that I would loose python support as well since I use one device with python that does not work on win10

so I am in favour that python keeps the workarounds and fallback code for Windows 7 at least until ESU supports ends (since if its a dead code why would you remove it just leave it in, if it works well and you don't touch it often it does no harm)
