_Running_ Linux software and _being_ Linux(-based) are two completely
different things. FreeBSD runs (most) Linux (and glibc based) software, but
is a completely different (and mostly unrelated) codebase wrt. to the libc
and the kernel.
The distinction is pretty much the same with Wine: Wine can run Windows
binaries (mostly), but because of that it still isn't Windows.
