LINQ and PowerShell

I have seen a few examples of LINQ and PowerShell. Kirk demoed a good use, but, I was wondering, what might be some good, general thoughts about when it would be good to use LINQ instead of pure PowerShell. My understanding of LINQ is that it does a lot of what PowerShell already does (with type inference). Now, I know there is MUCH more to both LINQ and PowerShell than type inference. Since LINQ is not a native PowerShell capacity, I am just wondering what sort of functionality one might want badly enough to go through the trouble of incorporating it into scripts which PowerShell doesn’t already do by itself.
