Difference between Umbraco Open Source and Umbraco Pro

Hi,

I am thinking of using either dotnetnuke or Umbraco as a website framework for a client. Both appear to provide open source solution.

With dotnetnuke I can see the differences in paying or using the open source version.

But with Umbraco there appears to be no difference, apart from when you pay you get support? If that the only difference? Or are some of Umbraco modules/addons/functionality removed from the open source version?

Final question, am I looking at the right solutions?

The client would be wanting fully content managed website (site text, images, video), Upload video to site/social networking simultaneously,  integration with MS products (possibly), manage pages/menus, add in forms, add in questionaires?

Sorry bit of a general question at the end there, the open issue is more important :)

I know I can't believe I missed that prior to writing my question!!

How about the functionality, can it handle fully content managed website (site text, images, video), Upload video to site/social networking simultaneously,  integration with MS products (possibly), online booking auto update with network based calendar system (obviously depending on what the client runs) manage pages/menus, add in forms, add in questionaires?
