Never programmed c on unix and depending on what you mean with commands, I cant say for certain. But forget about os specific things like how to create threads and such. In general c is c no matter what os you're on.

The ansi C language is the same for all platforms (the "ansi" word before "C" is from an American Institute that has standarded the C language).

But when it comes to platform dependent libraries like the handling of graphics, or operating system calls, it differs from platform to platform.

One of the **BIG** advantages of the OpenGL library in combination with the GLUT library is that you can port all your programs from Unix to windows and back (if your Unix environment supports OpenGL) as long as you don't make platform specific calls.

If you write 'clean' code you won't have to change a single line of code to port your code from one to another.

Hope this helps you a bit,
