    Version Check

    We are attempting to determine if our system machine is running Ubuntu server or desktop. Is there an easy way to determine what version of software you're running?
    Help Please......

    well, a few ideas (i can't check if they say if it's desktop or not) but
    Code:
    lsb_release -a
    uname -a
    may tell you, and the easiest check is...when you installed Ubuntu did you install it from a fully-functional desktop environment off the CD and did it install a GUI? If so, it's the Desktop version. Ultimately the Server and the Desktop systems are the same setup, with a few changes (such as the server can install apache and such from the initial setup, and has no GUI, whereas the Desktop has no apache but a GUI).
