How do you determine what Linux file system your using?

When you log onto a Linux system and get to the command prompt, how can you determine which of the many file systems supported in Linux you are using? Is there a command that will identify it?

All Filesystems?
ls /lib/modules/-your-kernel-/kernel/fs

or the ones in use (mounted)?
mount
