skew chisel grind

>Does anyone have an opinion about grinding a skew WITHOUT a hollow grind? I believe most turners use a wheel, so there will be a hollow. But clearly some sharpening methods will produce a flat -- and even a convex -- grind. I vaguely remember reading that there are some who actually have a preference for a convex grind. What, if anything , would be the advantage of a flat or a convex grind?
