Yes, Linux is a version of Unix based on open source code, named Linux after the creator, Linus Torvalds. Linus wrote the kernal code from scratch and created a worldwide collaborative process to extend his project. Today, there are more UNIX applications that run on top of the Linux kernal than any other UNIX. So, if you choose to go with Linux, you will have a wealth of applications and utilities to play with. Enjoy.
