hardinfo on Fedora

Filed under
Software

hardinfo, a tool for gathering hardware data and benchmark information was submitted to Fedora 7 updates testing.

I just discovered hardinfo in the Fedora repositories while I was checking for some data about my own packages and was curious what the program is capable of. And judging from the first looks the tool is indeed very helpful.

The first thing I noticed was that the GUI is well designed and user friendly: you have a good overview and can quickly navigate to see the information you need. In this regard it reminds me of the KDE info center.

But hardinfo stands out because of the amount of data which it can collect.
