3.9.3 is the kernel number. All Linux distributions use the Linux kernel,
so Debian version X and CentOS version Y may use the same kernel as may
Ubuntu version Z. There may be a list of CentOS versions and kernel numbers
somewhere, but I can't see that it would be of great interest.

My Ubuntu 13.10 shows 3.11.0 so you have a fairly old Ubuntu version there.
In general the Ubuntu kernel will be newer than the more conservative
