Of course, that data will be useless for determining the usage share of Windows 98 since it is based upon browser statistics.

If I had to make a guess, this would artificially inflate Windows Vista/7 and Mac OS X results (i.e. consumers are far more likely to use web browsers on external websites) while making XP, 2000 (and to a limited degree 98) appear to have a lower share since corporate users are less likely to let their computers have unfettered access to the net.

I wonder if the number of systems that are not connected to the Internet would be less than 1%

And you would be wrong.

Computers are used for stuff other than browsing stuff on the internet.
