Specifically, it's Mozilla 1.5,  on Linux,  running on a Pentium II or Athlon, 
or better, with the locale set to english speaking United States. Which means 
your XHTML, w3c DOM, EcmaScript, new XMLHTTPRequest() (without needing new 
ActiveXObject("Msxml2.XMLHTTP")), and client-side XSLT all work. The fact 
that it's on an i686 means it MIGHT have flashplayer, realplayer, or DiVX.

If it were 
Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux PPC; en-US; rv:1.5) Gecko/20031007
Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux PPC64; en-US; rv:1.5) Gecko/20031007
etc. it probably wouldn't have flash, realplayer, or DiVX.
