In the end both of them prepare an OS environment and execute

The main difference is that bin/instance is easier to type and is a
Python script. "sh parts/instance/runzope" is a Unix shell script, so
it's not available on all platforms. And in the zope2instance version
used for Plone 4 runzope does no longer exist.

Not quite. The recipe used to construct a Python path and put it into
runzope ;-) But luckily we don't have to do that anymore, as buildout
takes care of all that script generation stuff and constructing the
right sys.path for us.
