    .com is hosted, free blog solution. (Register online and use it for free)
    .org is the one you can download and install on your own hosting for free. (More themes, plugins, complete freedom)

    .org is fully customizable. .com limits you. Like said above, use .org

    More diffrents of wordpress com and org. First I shoud understand wordpress org.

    WordPress.org is where "WordPress" the software is freely available to the public.The same goes for thousands of plugins, in addition to a number of "premium" plugins that can be purchased separately.WordPress.org is terrific resource for "do it yourself" site owners.

    I shoud understand wordpress com.WordPress.com, things are flipped a bit.In wordpress com you can choose among nearly 200 themes. You can not uploaded theme zip file.WordPress.com hosting offers an inexpensive method to share your thoughts, images, and connect with others.
