Yes, I'm being a little nit-picky, but I want to clarify something:

Linux is a clone variety of Unix written by Linus Torvalds with assistance from a loosely-knit team of hackers across the Net.
In 1991, Torvalds began to work on a non-commercial replacement for MINIX while he was attending the University of Helsinki, which would eventually become the Linux Kernel.

Linux was originally written by Linus Torvalds as a clone of Minix, not Unix.

Aside from that, this is a good topic, worthy of being stickied.
