Finding out the version of linux used

All my development work at my company is done in client VPN and our systems are connected to it using Qwest vWorkspace VDI. Putty client is used to connect to various linux and unix servers in the client network. So I was just curious to know version and flavour details of the servers used.
Found out the followings commands.$ uname -a

Print basic information currently available from the system.
man uname will give u more details of the various options available.

Using  ls /etc/*release* you can findout the distro information.

The lsb_release command displays certain LSB (Linux Standard Base) and distribution-specific information. Type the following command:
$ lsb_release -a
