How To Confirm Mac OS Version from Command Line

Just a very quick tip today, I stumbled upon this command a while ago and think it may be handy for someone learning the OSX command line.

By using sw_vers command, you can easily confirm the exact version of your Mac OS and the product code (build version) of it:

macbook:~ root# sw_vers
ProductName: Mac OS X
ProductVersion: 10.8.2
BuildVersion: 12C2034
