Your question is too general and would take a several books to asnwer. However, check http://www.byte.com/art/9611/sec10/art1.htm
for a summarize article on various differences between Unix & NT.
But if you want to go & compare the underlying architecture, kernel ... you'll need to buy a few books for that.

Hope it helps.

Make a mistake when developing a program in the UNIX environment
and you computer still runs, you can debug your program, run
other programs, etc. On NT your General Protection Fault causes
the entire machine to crash.
