Summary:  Linux Standard Base Release Tools
LSB version query program

The program queries the installed state of the distribution
to display certain properties such as the version of the
LSB against which the distribution claims compliance as
well. It can also attempt to display the name and release
of the distribution along with an identifier of who produces
the distribution.

The lsb_release command is a simple tool to help identify the Linux
distribution being used and its compliance with the Linux Standard
Base. LSB conformance will not be reported unless the required
metapackages are installed.
While it is intended for use by LSB packages, this command may also be
useful for programmatically distinguishing between a original one and
derived distributions.
