It wasn't really accurate in numerous places.  I used SCO Unix on an 
intel platform, a pc, in 1991.  That was UNIX.  It ran fine on a standard 
PC that would normally run windows.  The real difference between Linux 
and Unix is that Unix is a trademarked name and you have to pay and pass 
a certification to use the name.  In all other respects Linux is Unix.
