    Similar, but different. BSD and Linux have completely different kernels, written separately. (http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3599/...3c07a0fe_z.jpg).

    They follow certain standards, but they are not really the same.

    Remember if you type man <command> it will tell you how to use that command (press q to quit)


    Also without wanting to go into technical details BSD and OS X are Unix, Linux is similar to and based on Unix but it is not Unix.
