Your task

Our feedback mechanism is rather crude and doesn't show anything besides an empty box. Fill it with a few system parameters, like Operating System, processor type, ram etc, so that the users doesn't have to type it in. Use only crossplatform API (such as those provided by Qt - QtGlobal and QSysInfo) because this needs to work everywhere.

Fun fact, our feedback page was designed by a GCI student in 2011.


A working patch, that applies cleanly to our source tree. This patch should be in the form of a pull from clone, hg export or unified diff format (in order of preference) implementing the functionality required.
