Unix and Linux are similar operating systems, but not identical.

Unix is ​​a separate operating system created in 1969. It's not free software and it's not under GNU license.

Linux is the so-called UNIX-like operating system. Unlike Unix is distributed under the GNU license - therefore is used by the designation GNU/Linux.

The term originally described the Unix operating system developed by AT & T. Today, most Unix term usually used for any system based on similar principles. Linux is one of those systems. Some tabloid media but from ignorance tend to have a habit of taking Linux to generate articles and especially the "statistics extensions Windows, Unix and Linux."
