Well, if the network bandwidth is your bottleneck (i donnot expect that
now days), then switching from full color to 8 bits is reducing the
bandwidth usage with up to 75 %: its 1 byte for every pixel in stead of
4 bytes for full color. In the days of analog phone liness with 33k6
baud bandwidth, that made a difference.
