Unix is a specification. Mac OS X is a certified implementation of Unix. This like asking "What is the difference between a turtle and a red-eared slider."
Mac OS X is based on UNIX.
They are both Unix based.
one is mac and one is windows
Mac OS X has different particles unlike Windows, were everything is a bit simpler then a Mac OS X.
No difference, really. Unix is an OS (Operating System)
Yes Mac OS is based on Linux
The reason for the exec functions being same/similar is because the Mac OS has its roots in variants of the Unix kernel.
Mac OS X is an operating system running a UNIX shell, unlike Windows which uses a DOS shell. Most software must be specifically designed for use on Mac OS X because of its different shell, though UNIX provides Mac with improved security.
No, the Registry is a feature of Microsoft Windows only. Neither the original Mac OS or the newer Mac OS X have ever used a Registry, Mac OS X is based on Unix which has never used a Registry.
Solaris, Mac OS X, HP-UX, and IRIX are all examples of Unix systems.

There are several differences between the original Mac OS and windows. Two of these differences include the fact that Widows was susceptible to viruses while Mac was not, and the MAC did not have menus in their windows. You could close a window and have the application still run. Windows had menus on each window and when the window was closed, the application stopped.
Mac-OS=Disk operating system==Linux OS==Windows OS==Unix OS=
They are all operating system.
Mac OS X is pronounced Mac OS Ten. It follows on from Mac OS 9 which was the last version of what is now known as the classic Mac OS and it saw the introduction of the new UNIX based OS so the Roman numeral X was adopted to mark the change.
Mac OS X. Why? First off, we have to consider our options. The major players are: Windows, Mac OS, and Linux/Unix Mac OS is the best because: - Support for automation (Automator/AppleScript) which is essential - Better hardware all-around - Nice functional GUI (comparable to Windows) - Ability to run all major OS via virtualization - UNIX root - Tools support is not bad (Xcode) In essence, Mac OS is like Windows + Linux/Unix.
There are way more than two differences between Mac OS X and Windows.Two of the most notable differences are:There are no known viruses in the wild for Mac OS X;Apple controls the entire Mac experience, providing both the OS and the hardware (versus Microsoft, which provides an OS to many different hardware companies).Both of differences (and many, many others) contribute to what many consider to be a much less frustrating experience using their computer, and are the primary reasons Mac users tend to regard their computers more favorably than Windows users.
Not exactly. Both Mac OS X and Linux are flavors of Unix, so they're very similar, but they're not identical.
Several different versions of UNIX have GUI's or Graphical User Interfaces. The most common example of UNIX with an interface is Mac OS X.
Windows, Unix, Mac OS
The Mac OS was designed by Apple as the operating system for their Macintosh range of computers. The first Mac OS, originally known as System Software, was introduced with the first Macintosh in 1984. Over the years the original Mac OS was developed, improved and expanded until Mac OS 9 in 2001. For version 10 Apple reworked the Mac OS around a UNIX core and this is known as Mac OS X.
windows, mac os, unix, linux..generally all of the present versions of these OC's are multitasking ones..
