@goldilocks: Thanks for a very descriptive and thorough answer but I am not clear which part of my answer you referred to be incorrect? Saying one as a service means it can do the "start" and "stop" stuff, while the other as simply a process. Please correct me if I am making no sense here.

The core difference between the two is essentially of a Service and a process. ;) I guess the basic intent would be security only. You might find this link interesting: unixmen.com/managing-your-services-and-processes-in-linux
