Is my distro ubuntu studios, or not?

I have a computer here that has Ubuntu 11.04 - Natty Narwhal and when I boot it up a screen appears saying "Ubuntu Studio - Linux for creative humans." How can I tell if this distro is actually ubuntu studio or ubuntu 11.04 (not ubuntu studio). This is not my machine, so I am not sure what the difference is. How can I tell? Also, what is the difference between the two?

You can try this command:
 lsb_release -a

No LSB modules are available.
Distributor ID: Ubuntu
Description: Ubuntu 11.04
Release: 11.04
Codename: natty

I'm not sure, but does this confirm whether I have ubuntu studios or not?

Ubuntu Studio is built on natty 11.04 so I bet that is what you got, i.e. the multimedia version of Ubuntu:
