Interestingly I tried this on Windows with IE, then Firefox 1.0, and then
IE And Firefox 1.0 both got identified as Windows XP Service Pack 2
(correct) but Firefox 1.0.1 identified the machine as just Windows XP (no
service pack at all), even though the machine is running SP2. Not a problem
with your code, but Firefox definitely seems to be removing OS info.
Seems to work fine on Linux under Konqueror and Firefox. Will try with
other browsers (Win/Linux/Other) soon.
