    You can grab this:

    Request.ServerVariables("http_user_agent")

    And then try your luck parsing out an OS. Not guaranteed to be in there,
    nor is it really at all consistant from PC to PC, but it's sometimes in
    there somewhere. I think that's as close as you can get from the server
    side of things
