Linux and Unix are both operating systems.

Think of Unix being the grandfather of Linux.
Unix comes in many flavors HP U/X, IBM AIX, Sun (now Oracle) Solaris, Free BSD, SCO Unix, even Mac OS X is a Unix variant of sort . So... Although most Unix OS'es are heavy geared towards text command interface It's not actually accurate to say that Unix lacks an advanced and usable GUI (graphical user interface) as in the case of Apple Mac OS X. Unix OS'es are typically used for servers.

Linux is a Unix based OS developed by Linus Torvalds thought as Unix lite if you will geared towards the X86 platform desktops. This OS has gained a lot of popularity as it matures and due to its open source and freeware nature. Just like Unix, Linux itself also has many flavors and distros (distributions) including Redhat, Ubuntu, Debian, Linux Mint, Fedora, CentOS, openSUSE, Arch OS, Slackware Linux, etc....

Linux is made considering unix as a base.
Linux is a operating system which provide both Gui nd cli to work and have very user friendly nd effective gui. However unix does not have effective gui.
Linux is open source however unix not.
Some of the commands have different switches moreover linux has more options for commands than unix.
Linux is flexible enough to run upon windows as well using vmware however unix can be run on fix hardwares

UNIX is a operating system which has only command user interface, and if the unix is installed in the system you cant install any other operating system after that ... one separate system must be allocated for the unix ...

LINUX is the graphical user interface and it supports multiple operating system ..

UNIX and LINUX are almost same, almost all commands which supports in UNIX supports in LINUX too .. with some extended features just like GUI(GRAPHICAL USER INTERFACE),SECURITY,MULTI USER,MULTI TASKING,etc

COMMAND USER INTERFACE - the input is made to the computer by using commands and the output is obtained by command or by printer ...

GRAPHICAL USER INTERFACE- the input is provided to the computer through the other input devices like mouse,joystick etc
the input is provided either by command or by the just clicking the mouse on the particular icon ...

example for graphical user interface is windows,Macintosh etc ...

UNIX suitable for biginers


I would like to humbly state, if you are completely new to Unix it may be in your advantage to start with a flavor of Linux.

Poseidon Linux is specifically geared towards the scientific community, and contains many applications and tools centered around those needs.

Here's a download link for Poseidon in English:
http://poseidon.linuxfreedom.com/

Scientific Linux, which is geared towards your ambitions is based of the Red Hat Distribution, which allows for easy installation via "Red Hat Package Management" or RPM.

Here's a link to Scientific Linux:
https://www.scientificlinux.org/

Should you feel that a true Unix experience is required, the choice of Unix would be up to you. The reason why you would have to choose a Distribution on your own is because mostly all Flavors of Unix do not come with mission-specific applications installed.

You can get Unix in both Open (Free) or Licensed.
Try this link for different flavors:

Hope this information has been helpful.

I want hospital management project in unix c++ iam unable to do..


There are many hospital management solutions available for Unix. In particular, given your Indian sounding name, you might be familiar with TACL-IT a GNU/Linux-based Hospital Management project in India. Unfortunately, I believe that is a proprietary project, so if you're looking for something with source code, you can find dozens available for download from here:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_open_source_healthcare_software.

Best of luck helping your "Sir" with his hospital management problem.

Might be Linux. It is widely availble, easy to use and has as much eye candy as vista. On the other hand you need to register for Solaris and I haven't seen any apps that work on Solaris. Linux filesytems include EXT2 EXT3.

To make a long answer short, Unix, Linux, and Windows are different operating systems. Each allow command-line commands and point-and-click operations. Unix workstations are used for running engineering software, programming, networking, web browsing, and electronic mail. Linux computers come with productivity tools and CSS is adding engineering software packages as they become available. Windows computers are used for productivity tools (word processing, database, etc.)

Unix installation


Do you want unix or Linux? Since you said linux, you need to know which flavor you want. SCO, and others, look on google for the different flavors.

I have ubuntu linux and I am writing you from it now. I love it, it's very nice working with Windows.

See this link for all the downloads.
See this link for using windows.

When you download and burn the Linux ubuntu, just run the disk in your windos and it will start to setup the dual boot and other things. Mine was EEEEASY!
