Reeeaaalllyy dumb question, perhaps, but. . .

With all this talk of relative paths and linking graphics, can someone tell
me what the advantage of linking graphics is? I'd guess the obvious is
reduced file size. But what size files are you talking about? What
size/types of graphics? Are they screen captures, tech. illustrations,
etc.? Is this for print doc. or online?

The reason I ask is because I've never had a problem with just doing an
Insert, Picture, and inserting actual graphics as wmfs, epss, or bmps.
(Well, bitmaps do get kinda heavy. . . ) Just curious.
