    Differences b/w Unix and Linux

    Hi, I know this might sound stupid but I am just wondering what are some of the key differences between Unix and Linux. I know Linux is basically a clone of Unix.. (they probably have the same file system too?) I am thinking of learning linux.. so i just wanna know if i learn linux, would i be able to work off unix easily? (btw, do they have the same command lines? similar at least?) well, your pointers would be greatly appreciated... thanks...

    Yeah, almost everything in Linux interface is the same as Unix. There are a few subtle differences though.
    What will people say if they hear that I'm a Jesus freak?
    What will people do if they find that it's true?
    I don't really care if they label me a Jesus freak, there is no disguising the truth!

    Let's see...I'm not a Linux/Unix expert. You can look it up on the internet...Go to google or something.
