What's the difference between a "Linux" quiz and a "more general Unix

(FHS is targeted to "Unix-like" filesystems, ie pretty much anything
but FAT ;-)  Viz:

[1]  Interestingly, it doesn't seem to be a POSIX question, as several
of the references I can find through Google add the caveat that the
"traditional sticky bit is undefined in this standard".
