What's the difference between a Windows control library and a class library?

As far as I can tell, they seem to do exactly the same thing, but I'm sure there's some things I'm missing out on.  I'm using Visual Studio 2005 / .NET 2.0 if that helps.

Could someone please elucidate the differences between the two?
