Dmidecode reports information about your system's hardware as described in your system BIOS according to the SMBIOS/DMI standard. This information typically includes system manufacturer, model name, serial number, BIOS version, asset tag as well as a lot of other details of varying level of interest and reliability depending on the manufacturer. This will often include usage status for the CPU sockets, expansion slots (e.g. AGP, PCI, ISA) and memory module slots, and the list of I/O ports (e.g. serial, parallel, USB).

Anton has been maintaining dmidecode for 5 years. Now he decided to move to other projects, so I will be taking over that role again. I would like to thank Anton for his good work. His dedication to the project gave me the opportunity to work on other topics during that time, and I am back with a fresh mind.
