Command to find out which version of BOSS GNU/Linux you are running

On a terminal type:

lsb-version -a

or type:

cat /etc/issue

Another option is to look at the /etc/apt/sources.list file

deb http://packages.bosslinux.in/boss eduboss main contrib non-free

You’ll see a line like the one above, look for the word immediately after the URL, here its eduboss, this indicates the version of BOSS GNU/Linux running on the system. The lsb-version command  provides more accurate information. The lsb-release command should work on most distros(as long as they are LSB compliant).
