Besides the syntax, what's the difference between using a django abstract model and using plain Python inheritance with django models? Pros and cons?
UPDATE: I think my question was misunderstood and I received responses for the difference between an abstract model and a class that inherits from django.db.models.Model. I actually want to know the difference between a model class that inherits from a django abstract class (Meta: abstract = True) and a plain Python class that inherits from say, 'object' (and not models.Model).

class User(object): first_name = models.CharField(.. def get_username(self): return self.username class User(models.Model): first_name = models.CharField(... def get_username(self): return self.username class Meta: abstract = True class Employee(User): title = models.CharField(...
