The value "win32" means Windows (or, more technically, "Windows NT
family", as opposed to Win95/Win98 - but since Win XP, that's the only
type of Windows there is). If you actually care about whether it's a
32-bit or 64-bit OS, you can look at sys.maxsize.

That's a CPU architecture. What OS would you be running on your ARM?
If it's Windows, "win32". If it's Linux, "linux". Etc.
