Question about Microsoft Windows Server Standard 2003 for PC
Could u please explain me the difference between unix and linux ?
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 ...
any doubts you can reply me
