BSD and Darwin derivatives BSD (Berkely System Distribution) was a research operating system based on the original AT&T Unix, developed by the University of Berkeley, California. It has been Open Source right from the beginning, and after the university lost interest in developing it further, several community projects started up (the very first ones were NetBSD and FreeBSD in the early nineties) to continue developing BSD. Anyway, Linux was born roughly at the same time, but a pending lawsuit about copyright infringements prevented the BSD projects to become as successful as Linux (though you could argue about the exact reasons).

Linux Systemd?

Systemd is a clone of Solaris SMF. The creator of Systemd heavily references to SMF all the time. Just as BTRFS is a clone of Solaris ZFS. And Systemtap is a clone of Solaris DTrace. And OpenVswitch is a clone of Solaris Crossbow. And Linux containers is a clone of Solaris Containers. It would be nice to see Linux devs create something new, and not just cloning other OSes?
