What is the difference between subversion's update vs synchronize?

We recently switched to Subversion from clearcase. I would like to know what is the difference between the two options which the Eclipse plug-in shows: Update and Synchronize.

Thanks

Hi,

Update will update your working copy with the latest changes from the repository.
The Synchronize View will give you an idea on how others commits will affect your changes. It shows what the others did to the repository and what you have done meantime.
