Linux is a mostly POSIX-compliant Unix-inspired operating system kernel, originally implemented by Linus Torvalds and now maintained as an international project. It's the base and common namegiver to a wide array of Linux distributions. The kernel provides all modern Unix-y features, like true process multitasking, virtual memory, virtual and clustered filesystem support, complex networking and extensive support for various hardware and machine platforms.
Wine is an implementation of the Windows API on top of X and Unix. It does not require Microsoft Windows, but can use native Windows DLLs if they are available. It provides both a development toolkit for porting Windows source code to Unix as well as a program loader, allowing many unmodified Windows programs to run on x86-based Unixes.

The OpenBSD project produces a free, multi-platform 4.4BSD-derived UNIX-like operating system. Emphasizing portability, standardization, coherency, correctness, proactive security and integrated cryptography. It comes with almost 9000 software package in its ports, including a custom X11 environment (Xenocara), desktop environments, web and multimedia applications, compilers and programming languages. It also harbours the OpenBSD-maintained software projects OpenSSH, LibreSSL, OpenIKED, OpenBGPD
OpenWRT is a Linux distribution for wireless routers and low-resource embedded devices. It provides a coherent base system for different plattforms, various hardware and firmware drivers, and a Debian-style packaging system for application and add-on packages. The JSON-RPC based admin web interface LuCI makes configuration very user-friendly, but keeps the similar SSH and command line UCI interface and /etc files accessible. With its own PROCD system event daemon it can immediately respond to up
