I've noticed in pathlib.py the following error on line 39
if sys.getwindowsversion()[:2] >= (6, 0) and sys.version_info >= (3, 2):
it should be:-
if sys.getwindowsversion()[2:] >= (6, 0) and sys.version_info >= (3, 2):
I'm also quite uneasy on the case insensitive comparison on Windows as the
File system NTFS is case sensitive.
"""Current Windows file systems, like NTFS, are case-sensitive; that is a
readme.txt and a Readme.txt can exist in the same directory. Windows
disallows the user to create a second file differing only in case due to
compatibility issues with older software not designed for such
If people create .PY files it wouldn't work on Linux so why make it work on

Thanks. Both errors are now fixed.
