Ubuntu Linux version and name

Just for my own records. Here is how to check what version of Ubuntu Linux your server is running:

cat /etc/lsb-release
DISTRIB_ID=Ubuntu
DISTRIB_RELEASE=8.10
DISTRIB_CODENAME=intrepid
DISTRIB_DESCRIPTION=”Ubuntu 8.10″

Obviously you cannot find this out with traditional uname...
