GUI Device Manager (Hardware Drivers) should be Bundled with Ubuntu

Registered by khunter on 2010-04-08

All the Windows OS (for Home/Small Office use) eg. ME, XP, Vista, 7 have a GUI Device Manager built in.

Unless there is some other Device Manager like in Windows for Ubuntu that is better, I suggest gnome-device-manager should be bundled with Ubuntu for ease of use.

Device Manager must have functions to find Hardware Drivers that are not recognized by OS.

Option to Enable/Disable Hardware driver (eg. web cam/touchpad).

It should have option to completely Uninstall Hardware Drivers which are incorrect as determined by User.

It should also have option to look up in Ubuntu (web) Servers for updated hardware drivers/hardware drivers not installed.
