How to check Alpine Linux version inside container

While working with many applications in containers, especially if you're not building them yourself, it's not always clear, what type of base operating system you're using.

There are two commands below to quickly check Alpine Linux version (will work for most distributives, actually) from the console:

cat /etc/*release*
uname -a

Second command will also show brief info about host system.
