Is there a way to discover if an installed OS is workstation or server? Is it just a matter of the packages that are installed or is there some difference that can be detected?
I did find some interesting files in /var/log/installer:
media-info says "Ubuntu-Server" for the server and just "Ubuntu" for desktop. syslog shows the same information for the "cdrom"
or from the terminal run:
or, if the file doesn't exist, try:
Both of these are helpful and I can use them in conjunction with hardware information.
