What distro and release am I running?

If you sit down at a new box to fix it, or are SSHing into a remote box for the first time, you might want to verify the distro and release. …

Two examples from my box:

$ cat /etc/release 
Mandriva Linux release 2010.2 (Official) for i586

$ lsb_release -a
LSB Version:	lsb-4.0-ia32:lsb-4.0-noarch:*
Distributor ID:	MandrivaLinux
Description:	Mandriva Linux 2010.2
Release:	2010.2
Codename:	Henry_Farman
