The difference is that, for Linux at least, it will also work with multiple

I don't recall ever having problems with Windows and multiple primary
partitions (and that was my prefered way of partitioning).
Me neither, and a little googling on the subject seems to suggest this
problem is limited to the driver windows uses for USB sticks.
Apparently, there is a work around (not tested by me) by forcing windows
to see your stick as a USB disk (1). This will only work on PC's that
have been modified for your particular stick though. Suppose its an
extra level of security and you could always carry the modified driver
on the first partition of the stick for portability.
