This program generates a report of a Linux System and some important 
.conf files. The goal is for users to be able to post their information 
and compare with others, ask for help etc. Am I using the subrocess 
module too much because I am comfortable with the commands? Should I 
just write this type of program in bash. I am trying to get rid of all 
the comments generated in the report. I got rid of blank lines and lines 
starting with #. But can not figure out how the get rid of a line like;
         #This is a comment with 5 spaces
I never programed before so everything is new to me.
Here is my code;
The report it generates is at the bottom. I didn't want to post it all here.
