What command will tell me what version of Ubuntu I'm running?

I'm looking for a Unix/Linux command to determine what version of what distro I'm running.

"You can use this,

cat /etc/issue

or this,

cat /etc/lsb-release

The latter is probably better since it also gives the release name such as ""karmic"", etc. But it depends what you're using it for I guess."
