Yes, those are the two ways to describe water. The reason for the difference is that, for a chemist inorganic, the water molecule is the combination of hydrogen and oxygen, hence of hydrogen, oxide, while that for an organic chemist, the water molecule is the combination of the hydrogen and the hydroxide radical (which is composed of hydrogen and oxygen).
