What is the difference between "Millainen" and "Minkälainen"? Thanks in advance

I use them pretty much interchangeably. I did though find this on wiktionary that explains it quite well;

"Although minkälainen is largely replaced by the shorter form millainen, it is often used in sentences where one wants to stress that word or the importance of the question."

I personally use "Minkälainen tarkalleen?" - " What kind of exactly/in detail?, when I want even more information than I got by asking millainen.
