New submission from Florian Roth:

Using Python 2.7.9 and 2.7.10 (32bit) on a Windows Server 2008 R2 64bit System platform.win32_ver() shows the following, which is correct:

('2008ServerR2', '6.1.7601', 'SP1', u'Multiprocessor Free')
Using Python version 2.7.11 (32bit) on the same Windows 2008 R2 server shows:

('7', '6.1.7601', 'SP1', u'Multiprocessor Free')

which is wrong. 
Platform OS detection seems to be broken with version 2.7.11.
