How To Find Out What Version Of Ubuntu Linux You Are Using

There may be times where you need to find out what version on Ubuntu you, or a customer are using. The following commands can be a big help to an network Admin, or to help customers, and will work both on a Desktop or a Server system.

There are a number of ways in which to find out what version you are running:

cat /etc/issue

The file /etc/issue holds the version number of the Ubuntu that is installed on your system

cat /etc/lsb-release

The above file holds the version number, and some other basic information about the version of Ubuntu that you are running.
