How do you find SQL Server version info

There are five place you can find a SQL Server version information.

--1 select @@version
Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2 (RTM) - 10.50.1617.0 (Intel X86) Apr 22 2011 11:57:00 Copyright
(c) Microsoft Corporation Enterprise Evaluation Edition on Windows NT 5.1 <X86> (Build 2600: Service Pack 3)

--2 exec sp
exec sys.sp_MSgetversion

10.50.1617.0 1 3

 -- 3 SQL Server Logs

-- 4 SERVERPROPERTY
SELECT SERVERPROPERTY('edition'),SERVERPROPERTY('ProductVersion'),SERVERPROPERTY('ProductLevel')Enterprise Evaluation Edition 10.50.1617.0 RTM


--5 exec sys.xp_msver



Still you can find sql server version information from Windows Registry but i do not want to expose more on it here.
