Advanced images? What's different?

I'm a pretty heavy Linux user and am just curious what the difference is with the advanced image. I assume the noobs has a gui? and maybe the advanced is CLI?

There is only one official Raspbian Wheezy image, the latest release 25/09/2013.

Noobs is just any easy way to install & run mutiple Distro's, as explained here:

Are you talking about the raw images ?

Those do not contain NOOBS and need a special tool to
be written to the SD card ( at least on Windows).

You can't switch between OS' if you use raw images , and you
won't have a recovery option like the one provided by NOOBS.

The provided raw images only contain a single OS.

The NOOBS setup allows the user to try different OS from a single SD card without having to download and re-image the SD card. Once an image is installed from NOOBS, it is no different than the raw 'advanced' image.
