Had to look up BELARC to see what it does (you should always post a link to what you are asking about as far as software).

1st. I do not need any M$ patches on my linux system.

2nd. Virus are effectively nonexistent on linux.

3rd. lspci will list the vast majority of hardware

4th. Your packet manager will tell you what software you have installed (assuming you used it to install).

If something doesn't exist in the free software world, it's because there is no need for it.

To get somewhat more hardware info than with lspci you
could give lshw a shot.

As for listing installed software and/or patch-levels:
that's up to the package-management software for your
distro; there's no distro-independent way of doing that
to the best of my knowledge.
