    It depends on what you want to know.

    Have a look at uname -a, fdisk -l and lspci to start with.

    There isn't a single command that can give you all that info at the same time (although you could write a script to gather this information).
    1) uname -r
    2) cat /etc/*-release, cat /etc/issue
    3) parted, fdisk, hwinfo, lshw
    4) free, cat /proc/meminfo, lshw, hwinfo, top
    5) hwinfo, lshw, cat /proc/cpuinfo
    As you can see there are many commands available. Some will not be available by default e.g. hwinfo and lshw. I would advise you to buy a basic system administration book or download RUTE

    If you're running KDE, then there are several good system monitors available that run under SuperKaramba. (This puts all this info on your desktop)

    If you have Gnome, there are equivalents available... I've seen them in screen shots, but for the life of me I wouldn't know how to install any of them in a Gnome environment.
    Can't tell an OS by it's GUI

    Hi Daark.Child, since we are there again: I have to confess, the /etc/issue isn't the only one on my Debians...
    There is no /*/*release* (i tried locate *release*), there is however a /etc/debian_version, a /proc/version (here are more than just the Debianversion, there is Kernelname, Architecture, GCC-Version...).

    There are always going to be slight differences between distributions. /proc/version is available on all distros, but I've noticed that very few use the /etc/*version file.
