I'm vaguely familiar with both styles of mounts, but what is the main difference between the two styles and does one hold an advantage over the other?

Both mounts are very good,basicaly used for different things.Weavers are usually for hunting,Picatinny usually associated with And made for Military use!
The slots are cut a little different,but there are companies out there like EGW who make a rail that will accommodate both Weaver & Picatinney rings.
Most times the material is also different.If you have a heavy recoil use steel,like the ones made by Badger,medium to soft recoil Alloy steel or Aluminium,like the ones made by SWFA,Talley or TPS to name a few.
Hope this helps & I'm sure a few more knowledgable than. I will jump in
