What difference is there between a 360 controller and a "common controller?"

I know, but that one's a "common controller" apparently. What does that entail?

Common comes with a disc. I assume it has Windows XP drivers.

Because Windows XP won't download and install drivers for you.

one is branded for the xbox 360 and the other is branded for the PC, they are the same controller.

One has packaging marketed for PC users, the other has packaging for 360 users. Only difference, outside of the PC one probably coming with a driver disc. Physically, they are the same controller.
