TIP

If you were calling this to override the yii\mutex\FileMutex::$isWindows (opens new window) property, note that you can safely remove your custom mutex component config for Craft 3.5.0 and later. Craft now uses a database-based mutex component by default (see dbMutexConfig()), which doesn’t care which type of file system is used.
