The general question is tricky, as different languages differ in 
details what is forced and what is allowed for abstract classes 
and interfaces.

But roughly speaking, my opinion is: if you can/want to provide 
some default behavior than you are about to write an abstract 
If you are about to provide information/restriction of behavior, 
then this is more like an interface.
