Question Grab OS in PHP???

I'm trying to track the OS of people viewing my website using PHP. Does anyone know how to do this??? I didn't see an environment tag for it and my Google searches have been fruitless.

The closesr you'll get I think is the envvar HTTP_USER_AGENT, which is the browser ident.

Try searching for windows, mac, or linux in the string. This is not guarenteed as some people fake the ident, or their ident doesn't contain the OS.
