I don't know except supposedly being easier to use. I've used the 
Windows version in
Windows and all that had to be done was enter the name of the source 
partition, for example, 'C:'
and the name of the destination partition, 'F:' and it would clone 
everything from the C: partition
to the desired destination partition 'F:'

For Linux, there's 'unstopcp.gz which is supposed to work the same way. 
But, the source and
destinations are entered in a different way from the Windows version. 
NOT A CLUE as to the
form to use.
