There are several unix flavors. If you read any unix document or tutorial, you'll get a detail history of it.
That's almost an impossible question to answer.
For starter: unix or nix, are the very first true O/S, all other O/Ss that followed uses the experiences and lessons learned from nix.
Second, nix also is a true multi-user O/Ss. Its popularity comes from its ability to run long time without reboot or crashes (Blue Screen of Death).
The new generations if you can called it that are the BSD and linux systems, they are free, extremely stable, with a huge knowledge network where almost any of your questions get answer (IRC, forums, mailling-list).
