Better System Information with inxi
Getting system information can be a tricky task, having to gather bits a bobs of information from various places. A Friend recently sent me a link to a little script called inxi. It comes pre-installed with SolusOS, Crunchbang, Epidemic, Mint, AntiX and Arch Linux but as it is a bash script it works on a lot of other distributions. Although it is intended for use with chat applications like IRC it also works from a shell and provides an abundance of information. Installation is as easy as downloading and chmoding a file so next time you find you need some information about your hardware, rather than poking around in /proc, just fire up ./inxi -F

I discovered this the other day as well, and it is pretty neat. I don’t think that it comes installed on Arch Linux, as I had to install it myself (the base group of Arch is pretty bare). In any case I am sure this post would be useful to some.
