Hello Linda,

Both UNIX and Linux are multiuser operating system, but the difference comes in as follows:

The UNIX operating system commands are based on Character User Interface also popularly known as CUI, This kind of coding system does not support pointing device

Linux on the other hand is base don the Graphical User Interface which is otherwise known as the GUI interface. Unlike UNIX, Linux has more added features. It is itself like the DOS and the Windows operating system.

Examples of Linux commands are:

adduser: Add a user to the system
addgroup: Add a group to the system
alias: Create an alias


Examples of Unix commands are:
mkdir dirname:make a new directory
cd dirname : change directory

Redhat and fedora are the same, ubuntu and kubuntu are the same. for example

   to install program from repository           redhat                                     ubuntu                                                                 

   to install progrm locally                              yum                                        apt-get

                                                                           rpm                                          dpkg
