Shouldn't hardware:overview contain more information about your hardware?
It can list your scsi adapter, network card, video card, sound card, tv

Enhancing the hardware view would be fine. In fact, there's a pending patch that still hasn't been committed to add SCSI checks.

The only thing we want to do is be careful to ensure that enhancements are done in a way that will compile and run even on platforms that don't have things like "/proc/pci" and don't cause portability problems for Nautilus.

On the other hand, enhancements to hardware view are not a top priority for the main Nautilus contributors, so these need to come from other volunteers.
