Display And Generate System Hardware Information – Ubuntu Guide For Windows Users

As all Windows users know, running Device Manager will give you an overview of all installed hardware on your System. Ubuntu also includes a Device Manager utility (located at System \ Preferences \ Hardware Information) which is very similar to Windows Device Manager.

One common feature missing in both Windows and Ubuntu Device Manager versions, is the capability to generate a summary report. Fortunately there is another tool available that provides greater detail of hardware information, with two added features: Summary and Benchmark reporting.

The utility, Hardinfo will gather information about your system’s hardware and operating system, perform benchmarks, and generate printable reports either in HTML or plain text formats.

Good stuff! Only problem is that it doesn’t (as of the last time I installed it) put a link in the Applications menu as it says it does so I have been making a launcher for it and putting it on the desktop or in the bar. Should (IMHO) be in the core Ubuntu distro!

    Looks like a nice app. Will have to check it out. The report reminds me of the one that Belarc generates about a windows computer.
