Determining memory, and more, with Ubuntu

Unfortunately, Crucial's system scanner tool doesn't work on Linux.

While unfortunate, it turns out that there's an easy way to determine how much memory you've currently got, and how much you can increase that to, using a simple comand.

sudo lshw

That's all there is to it.

This gives not only an overview of how much you've got, and how much you can have, but also what banks are in use with what, and other system-related 'stuff.'

Pretty nifty.

For better or worse, it looks like the Dell I got from work is maxed out. But, considering that it's running Ubuntu (which I haven't been on since September or October of last year) and it's running fine anyways ...

(Of course, Crucial is pretty cool, in that you can find most standard computers on their site.)
