Why are you asking about the blatantly obvious? Don't you understand what a botnet is? What do you think a bot without a net does? Well, hopefully it doesn't do much. That would be the difference anyway. No net! Why? Because the machine isn't on the net. That's a guarantee for many things, but not a cure for all ailments.
