> Linux is moving to be more Windows like and less Unix like

Except Linux (and Apple) does it first.

Linux moves in many directions: Ubuntu (Unity) one way, Fedora (Gnome 3) another, KDE adds stuff the others don't have. Ubuntu adds desktop ability to phones. Raspian (LXDE) runs on minimal hardware.

And they do it well before Windows copies them. It is just that you only notice features when Windows gets them and think they are something new. You probably think that multiple virtual screens was copied by Linux from Windows!!

I have no idea what you think is 'less Unix like'. Possibly you are trying to say that Linux today is less like what was available 20 years ago (CDE).
