Python: What OS am I running on?


>>> import os>>> os.name'posix'>>> import platform>>> platform.system()'Linux'>>> platform.release()'2.6.22-15-generic'

The output of platform.system() is as follows:

  • Linux: Linux
  • Mac: Darwin
  • Windows: Windows

See: platform — Access to underlying platform’s identifying data


Dang -- lbrandy beat me to the punch, but that doesn't mean I can't provide you with the system results for Vista!

>>> import os>>> os.name'nt'>>> import platform>>> platform.system()'Windows'>>> platform.release()'Vista'

...and I can’t believe no one’s posted one for Windows 10 yet:

>>> import os>>> os.name'nt'>>> import platform>>> platform.system()'Windows'>>> platform.release()'10'


For the record here's the results on Mac:

>>> import os>>> os.name'posix'>>> import platform>>> platform.system()'Darwin'>>> platform.release()'8.11.1'
