No, Linux is not a UNIX clone. Linux and UNIX have similarities but they are not the same.

Yes, Cygwin is a great start on Windows to get into the Linux / UNIX world, but Cygwin is a Linux toolset.

If you really want to start learning UNIX FreeBSD is the UNIX of choice, for a live distro that will boot from USB or CD, choose GhostBSD.
