How to get the OS name in Python

In this tutorial, we will learn how to get the current OS (operating system) name in Python.

Using os.name method

To get the os name, we can use the built-in os.name method in Python.

The os.name method returns the underlying operating name that the user is using currently example windows or Linux , mac etc.

Here is an example:

import os
currentos = os.name

print(currentos)

Output:

'Windows'

In the above code, we first imported the os module and called a name method on it to get the current operating system name.

Note: The above method returns ‘POSIX’ for Linux and Mac operating systems.

Using platform.system()

Similarly, we can use the platform.system() method in python, to get an os name.

Here is an example:

import platform
currentos = platform.system()

print(currentos)

Output:

'Windows'
