It's not clear to me whether WindowsError is available on linux or
not, after I read the document. But I see WindowsError in
Could you somebody let me know what cause the following error?

>>> try:
...   raise WindowsError('WindowsError')
... except WindowsError as e:
...   print e
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<stdin>", line 3, in <module>
NameError: name 'WindowsError' is not defined
