No, Linux is a kernel.
Linux distribution is a collection of software which integrated with a linux kernel make a Unix-like OS.

Edit: The differences between distributions lie mainly in the use of diferent installers and of cause in the use of different init-systems nowadays.

Banning colag's account for now as it's apparently been hijacked. Will try to contact him to get this straightened out.
