How to know your Ubuntu version from the terminal

Developers often use uname -a to get the version of operating system.

Though 'uname -a' gives the system information it doesnt give the details about the Ubuntu version.

just type in command:

lsb_release -a

output looks like this:

No LSB modules are available.
Distributor ID:    Ubuntu
Description:    Ubuntu 13.04
Release:    13.04
Codename:    raring

As you can see in the output, it clearly provides the Ubuntu version in the description field.
