If you ever wanted to share your system information with another user, whether that be in a support forum or to show off your rig, it's always nice to do so in style.

A program called Neofetch allows you to do so using colorful and fun ascii operating system logos along with information about your system that you can then share as an image.

Neofetch describes itself as an "A command-line system information tool written in bash 3.2+" and is easier to use on Linux variants, but can also be used on macOS and Windows after installing some additional components.

Once installed, you can simply run the "neofetch" command from a console and it will display your system information along with an ASCII art logo for the operating system. Below are some examples of screens generated by Neofetch on various operating systems. Note, some of these of operating systems were done in Windows Subsystem for Linux for ease of access.
