Dumps BIOS information. From http://www.nongnu.org/dmidecode/:

Beware that DMI data have proven to be too
unreliable to be blindly trusted. Dmidecode
does not scan your hardware, it only reports
what the BIOS told it to.

We all know how dishonest your average computer is. Is that because we lie to them so much?

DMI (Desktop Management Interface) is going away (` http://www.dmtf.org/newsroom/newsletter/2003/06/page5), to be replaced by Common Information Model (CIM).

You may have "biosdecode" also.
