Is there a command to show how old is the aptosid OS? Suppose, I didn't do a re installation with aptosid, I keep on dist-upgrade, and the system survive for ten years (suppose aptosid last for ten years too) without breakage. No reinstallation from CD rom or other source.

Now, is there a command where I could type, and I could show it to some people, 'Look at this. This system has a ten year history. I did a clean installation ten years ago.'

Is it possible to show how old is the aptosid OS?

the first line of `infobash -v3` will tell you which release you installed. it's not an exact date, but ten years from now, it will show that the release you installed is ten years old Smile
