[Sugar-devel] Strawberry ID?

I can't seem to find either the lsb_release command, or a file by that name.
Typing "lsb_release" in the Terminal gives me "file not found".
"Find" doesn't locate the file either, nor does a listing of the /etc/
directory (I thought I understood that is where it was supposed to be).
I tried these things on the XO-1, Strawberry, soas03 and soas04.
Can you give a further hint?
Should my Python line read something like:
if not /etc/lsb_release(LSB_VERSION) == "1.0":
to rule out Strawberry?
I'd at least like to play around with this idea to see if I can accurately
identify select versions.

A common mechanism for detecting the distro and version is
lsb_release, but I'm not sure how well will work for the use cases you
are interested in.
