Hardware information on Linux

More than three years ago I wrote an article about lshw and lshw-gui, a program and a GUI that allow us to "see" inside the computer all the individual components (CPU, RAM, video card, sound card, network card, etc..). The GUI now has changed its name, it is not more than lshw-gui but lshw-gtk. Aside from that, I realize that after more than three years, the article is still current and does not need additions.
