    Unix is not a single operating system. It has many flavors (aka. variants, types, or implementations). Although based on a core set of Unix commands, different flavors have their own unique commands and features, and designed to work with different types of hardware. No one knows exactly how many Unix flavors are there, but it is safe to say that if including all those that are obscure and obsolete, the number of Unix flavors is at least in the hundreds. You can often tell that an operating system is in the Unix family if it has a name that is a combination of the letters U, I, and X.

    The following is some of the well-known Unix flavors, with their Company name

    AIX by IBM

    BSD/OS (BSDi) by Wind River

    CLIX by Intergraph Corp.

    Debian GNU/Linux by Software in the Public Interest, Inc.

    Tru64 Unix (formerly Digital Unix) by Compaq Computer Corp.

    DYNIX/ptx by IBM (formerly by Sequent Computer Systems)

    Esix Unix Esix Systems

    FreeBSD by FreeBSD Group

    GNU Herd by GNU Organization

    HAL SPARC64/OS by HAL Computer Systems, Inc.

    HP-UX by Hewlett-Packard Company

    Irix by Silicon Graphics, Inc.

    Linux by several groups several

    LynxOS by Lynx Real-Time Systems, Inc.

    MacOS X Server by Apple Computer, Inc.

    NetBSD by NetBSD Group

    NonStop-UX by Compaq Computer Corporation

    OpenBSD by OpenBSD Group

    OpenLinux by Caldera Systems, Inc.

    Openstep by Apple Computer, Inc.

    Red Hat Linux by Red Hat Software, Inc.

    Reliant Unix by Siemens AG

    SCO Unix by The Santa Cruz Operation Inc.

    Solaris by Sun Microsystems

    SuSE by S.u.S.E., Inc.

    UNICOS by Silicon Graphics, Inc.

    UTS by UTS Global, LLC

    All the best.

    You can run into royalties and licensing issues using any of the Unix variants. Solaris is truly based on Unix, is now open source and from the same company that wrote Java. Solaris runs best on Sun workstations.

    Tru64 was the OS that ran on the old DEC Alpha 64-bit machines. It is derived from Unix.

    AIX is the IBM version of Unix and it is OpenSource, still available.

    The Linux kernel, originally authored by Linus Torvalds, coupled with the GNU free libraries allows variations of Linux.

    HP developes their own brand of Linux. The HP version is also OpenSource.

    The commercial version of Linux is RedHat. The same company also offers a free Linux named Fedora.

    The business model for OpenSouce Linux is the developers will charge for updates and maintenance.

    I know True 64 and HP-UNIX are UNIX, i think AIX is also UNIX. But Linux and solaris are "descendants of unix" if you will.

    there is not any "ideal" one. each and each handles different initiatives extra or a lot less effectively than the others. Linux is the most usual and doubtless the finest to commence with. It has the perfect laptop help and is surprising for low-end servers. it is also free (as in freedom, and many times as in beer). there are 1000's of distributions to be sure from, each and each designed to satisfy particular needs and needs. FreeBSD and its cousins are free as well, and are as reliable because it receives. they're no longer as solid for pcs, yet can potential virtually any server you positioned them on. they're extra like classic UNIX than Linux is. *BSD documentation is unheard of, yet there continues to be a gaining knowledge of curve concentrated on utilising any *BSD. AIX is older and a lot less common lately. that's a real UNIX platform and runs ideal on IBM hardware, being an IBM product. that is many times used on larger-end servers. no longer a superior decision for the recent consumer, and has minimum laptop help. Solaris is yet another "classic UNIX"-ish OS. It may also potential a heavy-responsibility server without problem. that is made by technique of sunlight and accordingly runs ideal on sunlight hardware (SPARC chips). Solaris's open-source version, OpenSolaris, isn't really as reliable because the proprietary version, besides the indisputable fact that that is getting there. again, no longer solid for the newbie. Mac OS X is outfitted on FreeBSD. i exploit Linux on my laptop and a number of my residing house servers, and use FreeBSD for others. i like both for various causes.
