you cant just download it as it is propieratary e.g HP/UX or AIX

because he said unix, as the name says, GNU/Linux is not Unix

>because he said unix, as the name says, GNU/Linux is not Unix
Neither is FreeBSD, OpenSolaris, etc.. They're all clones of the original Unix creations, which are now dead.

FreeBSD is just used as a popular alternative to Unix because it's more pure (one distribution pretty well), gives a close feel to the original Unices, and has less restrictive licences for commercial software than Linux. Technically however, FreeBSD has the same relationship to Unix as Linux does to Unix.

AFAIK the BSD branch was derived straight from Unix, while GNU was a rewritten Unix-like independent development originally by LT

yeah, so basically solaris is the only true UNIX that you can freely download
