From my experience this need to be more polished for all types of hardware and more detailed report in clear format.Just give it a try hope you will get some information from this.
Good software. Why Canonical not use this software to generate report and send to Ubuntu official wiki page? This send to Ubuntu-it.org
I don’t get the point of this, because there is already a tool, “Hardware Testing”, that reports hardware information.
And btw less terminal tinkering would be nice… even an apt: link for the lazy.
