from Tkinter import Tk
There's a plethora of other information available as methods of the Tk
object (actually any Tkinter widget), including color depth, cursor
position, window manager type, etc.
Note that this is actually creating a Tk window; calling its destroy()
method right after you've finished with it prevents it from appearing on
screen. Don't do this if you actually are creating a GUI with Tk.
