I know if run ./bitcoin-qt, wallet GUI program started.

Then if everything is normal and fine, what will happen when run ./bitcoind?

Bitcoind is simply a so-called "headless" version of bitcoin-QT, so instead of a GUI (like Bitcoin-QT has) it has a command-line interface. So booting up bitcoind will give you a command prompt instead of the GUI bitcoin-qt provides.

I believe that there are no differences ( in terms of what commands are available, configurations etc) other then the GUI being different.  (or missing)

Some more information about the two can be found here > https://en.bitcoin.it/wiki/Running_Bitcoin

The more handy way would be to run bitcoind in daemon mode:
Code:
./bitcoind -daemon

and afterwards use API commands [1] to communicate via:
Code:
./bitcoin-cli


To stop the daemon you can type:
Code:
./bitcoin-cli stop

Using

Code:
bitcoin-cli help
and
Code:
bitcoin-cli help <command>

will give you much better and up to date information than can be found on the Bitcoin wiki.
