How frequently to run cron?


You can decide how often jobs get processed, we recommend an interval of one minute.

But from the Settings page:

Use system’s cron service to call the cron.php file every 15 minutes.

Which is better, and why? I know that cron.php can be run in parallel now. Whichever one is better, it would be best if all the documentation was consistent.
