Its a program called neofetch that you can install through your distributions package manager. Then when its installed, you just type neofetch into your terminal and it will generate that info for you.

InstantOS has an interesting window manager and a cool installation process, walks you through choosing various options. I like it, as it saves you some time being already pre-configured. But for some reason, I cant get used to Window Managers yet, maybe in a few more months it will be more appealing. I think if you want something nice looking out of the box with a window manager, this does seem like an interesting option.
I use a PopOS/Gnome and a Gnome extension for window managing - GTile.
I've worked out these ONE handed shortcuts, and now I can't live without it. I even had to find the equivalent for Mac (Magnet).

Super+Alt (with thumb) + Key to make the window snap with 1 other finger.
Q,A (top and bottom of screen), Z,X (left and right of screen)
W,E,S,D (4 corners of screen)
1,2,3 (3 columns, 3 thirds of the screen)
4,R (2/3rd Left and Right)
F (Fill screen)
V (Full screen on/off)

(I applied the same shortcuts for my Mac. Had to pay for the app but quickest purchase ever.)

PopOS's shell auto-tiling is neat, but it doesn't give me the control I want. Or maybe I haven't gotten used to it. They do have shortcuts for juggling the windows around (like swapping windows etc). But I just prefer my way.

(Sorry, I know there's not meant to be discussions here, just screenshots of Desktops! Carry on!)

sudo apt install neofetch
sudo apt install screenfetch

Then you just type in the last part.
neofetch
screenfetch

also sudo apt install htop if that doesn't work try Htop I can't remember if the H is capital or not.

Who said geeks and Linux users never goes out of their dens, and never leaves their computers? The creator of the wallpaper really took a photo of my "ideal ride", still a dream for now.
Good old Debian, XFCE desktop, on a quite old computer (2008) still running surprisingly fine.

Hmm... I should go get some pics of Winter In Maine - but from up in the mountains.

I like the sunset in that pic @kc1di. For those not from the area, that was taken at like two in the afternoon! (I kid, it's not that bad, it was probably closer to 4, depending on what day it was taken.)

Sunrise? So, like 10 in the morning? :D

Not as much as one might think. It's been a slow year. But, it's cold enough for the slopes to be able to make plenty. We've only hit negative temps once this year. Even then, it only hit -6° (not including windchill).

I spent a lot of time in MA (not a Masshole) but it still took me ages to adjust to how short the days get in the winter. I spent most of my life further down the eastern seaboard. I'm used to it now. My previous girlfriend had issues with SAD (little sun equaled depression) so I have full spectrum LEDs all over the house. They haven't worn out yet, so they still exist. I don't mind them and they may help.
