Hi, to add to Eric's post which is accurate, a trunk port will have an implicit ingress filter that cannot be disabled. A general port may have the ingress filter disabled making it a more true 802.1q operation.
General mode ports have a tendancy to work better when interoperating with non-small business products and 3rd party vendors due to the flexibility in configuration options, namely you don't have to specify a tagged default vlan, you may disable the ingress filtering. Unlike a trunk mode, there is a special command set to tag the default vlan (no untagged members) where as general mode the command syntax is normalized like any other vlan.
