Q.  Linux: Find the distro I am on?

A.  This command should be on all Linux boxes:

lsb_release -a
Example output on Fedora:
LSB Version: :core-4.1-amd64:core-4.1-noarch Distributor ID: Fedora Description: Fedora release 28 (Twenty Eight) Release: 28 Codename: TwentyEight
Example output on Ubuntu:
Distributor ID: Ubuntu Description: Ubuntu 16.04.4 LTS Release: 16.04 Codename: xenial
`lsb_release` is better than reading /etc/issue or doing `uname -a`
