What are the advantages of a C permit over a B permit for an EU family?

I have been living in Switzerland for 6 years now, arrived on an L permit for 1 year, then received a non job dependant B permit. My family has now been offered a C permit. I have been employed for companies and have set up a company which has been inactive now for 18 months. I am in an appeal situation trying to get the Chomage, and and living off savings. With a C permit can I move somewhere cheaper than Vaud, whilst I wait for my Chomage Tribunal decision, also what are the ruels about keeping an address here. Is it possible that I stay, pay my health insurance and find a most basic of address ?

C permit is almost like a US green card (permanant resident) and you may work or live any where in Switzerland (except for voting rights)..

For an EU the B permit is the same..... You can leave for 6 months v 3 months is the bigest difference.
