They are very similar in concept.  I have detailed descriptions of  
both of them at <http://panalaska.org/geek>.  In a nutshell, the GTD  
bundles are based on the "plan in projects, execute in context"  
theory.  What that means is that the GTD bundle uses a file for each  
project (or it could be a location, like work or home).  The contexts  
for tasks are users definable in the contexts.gtd file.  The "View  
List" commands list all of the tasks for (selected) projects by  
context.  The major difference between the bundles is that GTD2 uses  
the concept of "state" for a given task - whether its an active task,  
one that is waiting for something else, one that is delegated, etc.   
Hope this helps differentiate the bundles!
