If you are a "geek" who often do many tasks with command line interface, you should try this simple application, Archey! It displays system information and distribution logo directly as an ASCII art directly on Terminal.

Installing Archey
Simply run the following command to install Archey on Ubuntu
  • sudo apt-get install lsb-release scrot
  • wget http://github.com/downloads/djmelik/archey/archey-0.2.8.deb
  • sudo dpkg -i archey-0.2.8.deb

You can run archey automatically when you open Terminal (if you want to do so). By simply adding "archey" at the end of ".bashrc" file. Please follow this stupid guide: open Terminal and type the following command:
  • gedit ~/.bashrc

Well, save the changes of ".bashrc" file, close existing Terminal window, open it again and it will display system information and distribution logo automatically.

Enjoy :)
