      You can see some example in the blog post. https://blogs.gnome.org/hughsie/file...8-10-25-48.png

            Wouldn't get that excited. For me this and it shows just two hard drives and nothing can be done. Good for Dell or whatever but if you put together your own computer I've a feeling its not anything worth while either for an unknown amount of time or never.

                Why not integrate it into GNOME Software instead?
