    Linux Operating System is Free and Open Source Software, the part of which is made by Linus Torvalds and group. Well you can not say UNIX Operating System doesn't goes under the class of Free and Open Source Software, BSD, is a variation of UNIX which goes under the classification of FOSS. Additionally Big organizations like Apple, IBM, Oracle, HP, and so on are adding to UNIX Kernel.

    Linux is a UNIX Clone. But if you consider Portable Operating System Interface (POSIX) standards thenLinux can be considered as UNIX. To quote from Official Linux kernel README file: Linux is a UNIXclone written from scratch by Linus Torvalds with assistance from a loosely-knit team of hackers across the Net.
