I'm not sure what this means.
Unix is a particular operating system originally trademarked by AT&T,
and now IINM by SCO.
Linux (or GNU Linux is you adhere to Stallman's position) is not Unix,
neither is GNU (which after all stand for GNU is Not Unix.
There is also POSIX which is an IEEE standard for the APIs of
"Unix-like" operating systems.
