Running an Ubuntu computer, sometimes you’ll need to know the version or model, or codename of the instance you’re running.
A simple command in the terminal will find this for you:
sudo lsb_release -a
Which should then provide:
Distributor ID: Description:
There is another way to get this information, using the system menu, but this way varies depending on the version. For this support, and to find the original source article that helped me, head over to the Ubuntu Community Help Board.
