Good idea, I like it
But can you do this similar as MS device manager. I mean more devices, not only devices with propriety available drivers.
And when you click on device the packages would appear witch are used by device, or are available to install for device.
And maybe linked with Mint community hardware database , so you could, see what problems have people with this device and how to fix it.
And could you have link to configuration files for device, so you could reconfigure them (maybe xorg.conf for graphic card etc).
