Didn't we have an "About Ubuntu" that was there until Oneiric? I liked
that official window which gave information about the version of Ubuntu,
the code name, how releases work, etc. Why was it taken out? Thanks!

Thanks for sharing your idea Michel!
Personally I am not sure that "About this computer..." is used so
frequently to deserve to be so easily accessible.
And this menu might become very usefull if easily accessible : it
might become an entrypoint to every other analysis/diagnosis tool.
If data really shows
that we need an easier way to access it, maybe it could be a quicklist
item in the Dash tile.
something like that ?
It's a very good suggestion !
It's 90% ok. IMHO, the 10% problem remaining is that the "about.."
menu is hidden behind a right-click : not obvious for beginners. But
it would be a first (good) step.
And I suppose it would be very easy to implement : the menu could open
the first tab of "system monitor" or "System info" from "settings" (it
seems these 2 panels conflict : they show nearly the same informations).
