Comparing to year 2007, there is a significant drop in popularity for Windows, 65.03% in year 2007, and 49.59% in year 2008. This drop is related to the increase of "OS unknown" from 17.89% to 32.28%, which is probably caused by the huge amount of Yandex indexing requests mentioned in the previous section.

It is very surprise to see that OS/2 systems were still used - 57 page requests in year 2008.
