I think the most important difference is that UNIX is a specification and also a trademark owned by The Open Group while strictly speaking Linux is just a kernel.  Mac-OSX is an example of a common OS certified as compliant with the specification.  Linux (and FreeBSD etc.) distributions can be considered unix-like but AFAIK none are certified under the UNIX specification, and so can't be called UNIX.  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Single_UNIX_Specification
