Hi,

One major preference to use -detached (implies -noinput which implies 
further -noshell) option is when you want to create a persistent 
application which doesn't depend on your connection with the machine 
where you run the application. It is similar with "nohup" command under 
Linux. It also implies the use of less resources than "screen", but with 
no capability to interact directly with it.
