A different virtual world that looks like Second Life. You can run it stand alone ( so only on your computer ), or you can connect to that grid on the internet like SL. I have never been in Open Sim, but i understand that it is far behind in SL, unstable and empty. It's for geeks really.
I prefer Second Life

OpenSim is, as mentioned earlier, intended to be a "clone" of the Second Life environment. You can configure the server software to be standalone, to allow other people to connect to it, or to have it as part of a larger grid. What you have to remember is that OpenSim is still in the "alpha" stage, officially, and has a lot of problems. Also, using it as a shared environment generally requires more than just the OpenSim software, for the sake of stability. I use OpenSim locally on my computer for building and testing, to some extent--after using it for awhile, you learn what works and what is going to fail horribly. It is handy for checking things like textures and animations without the need to upload them to Second Life. Even sculpties will load... kinda sorta.
It is pretty easy to setup a local server for your own use. It is not so easy to setup a shared server.
