How do I find out what version of Mac OSX I’m running from the command line?

If you enjoy CLI as much as I do, you tend to do most things that way. If you want to find the version of OSX that’s running you can execute the following command:

system_profiler SPSoftwareDataType


sw_vers -productVersion

Ex. oldserver:~ root# sw_vers -productVersion
