Ubuntu distro info

Today I found an Ubuntu-specific command by chance called “ubuntu-distro-info“. Example:

$ ubuntu-distro-info -af
Ubuntu 4.10 "Warty Warthog"
Ubuntu 5.04 "Hoary Hedgehog"
Ubuntu 5.10 "Breezy Badger"
Ubuntu 6.06 LTS "Dapper Drake"
Ubuntu 6.10 "Edgy Eft"
Ubuntu 7.04 "Feisty Fawn"
Ubuntu 7.10 "Gutsy Gibbon"
Ubuntu 8.04 LTS "Hardy Heron"
Ubuntu 8.10 "Intrepid Ibex"
Ubuntu 9.04 "Jaunty Jackalope"
Ubuntu 9.10 "Karmic Koala"
Ubuntu 10.04 LTS "Lucid Lynx"
Ubuntu 10.10 "Maverick Meerkat"
Ubuntu 11.04 "Natty Narwhal"
Ubuntu 11.10 "Oneiric Ocelot"
Ubuntu 12.04 LTS "Precise Pangolin"
Ubuntu 12.10 "Quantal Quetzal"
Ubuntu 13.04 "Raring Ringtail"

This requires the “distro-info” package to be installed.

Update (20130426)
If you want info about your current distro version, use this instead:

$ lsb_release -a
No LSB modules are available.
Distributor ID: Ubuntu
Description:    Ubuntu 13.04
