If it were ok with the developer of HardInfo 0.5.1 to modify the program. You could use the information that this software collects about your system hardware, to create an online database which would be helpful to Developers and users alike. All information would be gathered from the users machine /s and presented with no user identifiable information.

The database for hardware in not truly correct. Users are able to force

Probing the machine for info and uploading is the better way of compiling.

Great idea!But it should be left to every user if he wants to disable this feature.

Automating the collection of hardware info seems more sensible to me than trusting users to enter the correct data if at all. It should be optional whether to share the data though, and it should be possible to inspect what data was being uploaded before doing so.
