Would you mind sending me that article too, please.

I'm using Turbo Power's OnGuard in our products, and improved the
hardware detection code under Linux (CPU, network card, OS, user, HDD
etc), but I did not use DBUS at all, I simply parsed the data in /proc/*
and /dev/disk/*

The hard drive make and serial number was a tough one, especially
without forcing root access, but I did manage. I also asked in the
mailing list about other distros and if they have the same /dev/disk/*
information, and most modern Linux distros did.
