Linear drive uses linear motors that have no moving parts, strictly a coil over magnets. "Rack and Pinion" as you call it uses AC servo motors that are driving belts and pullies

The linear motor has no moving parts and is faster but generates a lot of heat over the system..........The AC servo motors don't have heat issues but have lots of moving parts hence maintence.
