I-Nex – system Information tool

Last Updated on October 26, 2023

I-Nex is an open source system and hardware information tool similar to the Windows utility, CPU-Z. It comes with a well designed graphical user interface that allows users to view information about their system hardware.

Besides displaying hardware information, I-Nex can also generate advanced reports which can be forwarded to a nopaste service.

I-Nex uses a new version of Gambas which can make installation non-trivial for some distributions.
