    Unix and Linux are two operating systems that have many significant overlapping features and, yet, continue to be unique in their own ways. Both Unix- and Linux-based OSes offer a high level of security due to their lack of root access and quick updates.

    While most of the world today is dominated by Linux, it is Unix which is very old and also known as the mother of all operating systems. In fact, the Linux kernel is also derived from Unix. You will find Linux to be an ideal operating system, widely used for game development, computer software and hardware, tablet PCs, and mainframes. The “Linux Revolution” has allowed the operating system to rule over our desktops, servers, smartphones, and even some electrical appliances like refrigerators. Unix is primarily used in workstations, internet servers, and PCs by Intel, HP, Solaris, and more. 

    Before we dive in to get an insight into the differences between Unix and Linux, let us first take a look at their individual history and purpose of development.
