Unix is a truly multi-tasking OS. As with any OS, Unix utilizes it's resources (i.e. Processor, RAM) in different ways than DOS. UNIX is more suited for running on a system with a high level of performance (i.e. 64 bit processors). UNIX shares the processor among it's users and tasks. So, in a UNIX network, one central computer (server) does all the processing and the client PC's are essentially "dumb terminals" (meaning they don't do much as far as processing goes). Also because of this architecture you can tap into the processors from the client PC's and utilize their power so your network become one giant processor. File ownership and privileges take on a more important role in UNIX. Since it is one giant network and I could essentially have access to your files, naturally you would want yours protected so I cannot make changes to them. So, as you can see it is more suited for a server than it really is a client PC.

another great thing about UNIX is because of the way the file system is set up, you never have to defrag because files don't become fragmented.
