Although I think Stallman has long since lost the battle on that error of terminology.

But one thing I would change is the "Linux is a unix-based operating system" since it is not based on Unix. Probably unix-like or unix-inspired would be the better way to go.

Edit: Just Read your post above mine... nevermind, I didn't know they did that.
Yes it is a Unix like system, actually I just used the word "based", meaning this.

You can't edit OLD posts or I would change some things. Also the mods don't seem to think this post is worthy of a sticky too, which is really sad.
