Between disros themselves? Little except the init system. As an
example, when I first installed Stretch, it defaulted to systemd, but
with just a couple of commands in a terminal, I converted it to
sysvinit. Took less than a minute and a reboot. And it's been running
for months now without any problems.

By default?  No.  But with most that default to an init other than
systemd, you can convert it to systemd.

As far as the pros and cons of the two init systems, maybe, this will
help.  Although, both are Debian specific, they generally apply to
all Linux distros.
