Question Display distribution details in bash


How can I have informantions about the distribution from the bash?

uname -all _or_ cat /proc/version don't give enough information.

I'd want to have something like "This is an Ubuntu 7.10, you m0r0n!"

Thanks,
Saverio

See if you can cat /etc/*release or /etc/issue, then you know what to edit. Else 'lsb_release -a'.
