GetObject vs. GetACtiveObject

When getting the current instance of an acad session from a .net project, there seems to be two ways to do it:

Dim myApp As AcadApplication
myApp = Marshal.GetActiveObject("Autocad.Application.16.2")

Dim myApp As AcadApplication
myApp = GetObject(, "Autocad.Application.16.2")

both seem to work ok. What's the difference? Which one should be used, why?
