New submission from Stuart Axon <stu.axon at gmail.com>:

I'm not sure why this is happening, but os.uname() is failing on my computer in XP Home 32bit.  Tested in the normal shell and MSys

The code in platform.py looks like it should work to me.

Python 2.6.4 (r264:75708, Oct 26 2009, 08:23:19) [MSC v.1500 32 bit (Intel)] on win32
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
>>> import os
>>> os.uname()
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module>
AttributeError: 'module' object has no attribute 'uname'
