Most Linux users probably know the program Screenfetch: the tool that retrieves a lot of information about a computer (such as OS, theme, and hardware). Since I often return to my Windows system, I decided see if I can write or find a Screenfetch-like program on Windows. After a little digging, I found a Github project by nijikokun. However, it did not work past Windows 7 SP2 and many parts of the script were a little buggy. Hence, I decided to fix it, add some features, and make it supported from Windows XP to Windows 10. To install it, download it from my Github here and make sure you have Cygwin installed. It should display a lot of information about your system and an ASCII logo of Windows (it will either display the "modern" version or the more classic version depending on your OS). Please check it out and leave some feedback!
