Deski Reports: These are standard .rep files created from the full client (Desktop Intelligence) and these reports can be built using all the tools/options available in BO.
These deski reports can be viewed in the Infoview/Web Intelligence but cannot be modified.

Webi Reports:These are .wid files created using the WEBI XI, and these reports can use limited tools/options available in BO(ref. comparison document on the BO website for complete difference on Webi and Deski reports).These reports can be built and viewed and modified/created using Infoview/Web Intelligence.

DI :1)not more interactive
      2)u need universe in ur local system..otherwise import from the repositary server
      3)need BO software client version in ur local system.

wI :opposite to above and we need only server path to generate WI reports
       need to maintain good intra -net service
       no need to install any BO software ...because we can work with repository server
