Wikipedia: Linux
Linux (/藞lin蕣ks/ LEEN-uuks or /藞l瑟n蕣ks/ LIN-uuks) is a family of open-source Unix-like operating systems based on the Linux kernel, an operating system kernel first released on September 17, 1991, by Linus Torvalds. Linux is typically packaged in a Linux distribution.

Wikipedia: Microsoft Windows
Microsoft Windows, commonly referred to as Windows, is a group of several proprietary graphical operating system families, all of which are developed and marketed by Microsoft. Each family caters to a certain sector of the computing industry.

Defunct Microsoft Windows families include Windows 9x, Windows Mobile, and Windows Phone.
