Greetings LSB,

I was recently answering some questions for an associate of mine
concerning lsb_release. This is, of course, an excellent way to
determine the OS version that is in use. One thing this utility does not
support (today) is the provision of a variant of the OS:

Server
Desktop
Workstation
etc.

Do you think you might add such an option? And tell me how one would go
about making a request to have this option added?

Jon.
