Hybrid version use two typee of software CAT OS and IOS  
Cat OS is used on the supervisory Engine (Where you define your vlan, set
domain name, and port setting) while IOS is used on the MSFC. MSFC is the
card that perform the routing.
The native mode used only IOS making the switch look like a router.

I recently did a conversion from Hybrid to Native. Native is much more
simpler to use and manage.
