Hello, Immigration Newbie Here.

So what is the main differences between having AOS and a GC? Does one become a 'permanent resident' before they become a green-card holder?

A greencard is your proof of Legal Permanent Residency Status.

You file AOS to become a LPR. All LRPs are issued a Greencard.

Applying for AOS is what gets you the green card.

Adjustment Of Status is the process you must go through in order to get a Green Card. You do not become a permanent resident until your AOS is approved. For example, my AOS was approved on 4/22/10, but I did not get the green card in the mail until 5/1/10. But it didn't matter that I didn't have the physical green card yet, because I became a permanent resident on the 22nd.
