Would that be comparing Linux and UNIX with BSD?  Given the frequency
of comments over the years about how "Linux isn't UNIX because it
shares no code with UNIX, but BSD does" that should make for an
interesting discussion.  Seriously, though, a discussion of the
strength/weaknesses of various freely available POSIX-like systems would
be a good thing...
