When I read:

I assume CLIENT/SERVER in the distributed systems architecture sense
NOT in the literal CLIENT =3D PC and SERVER =3D file server/printer server =
box sense. I see client/server meaning request/response rather than =
distribute object
remote methods, IIOP, RMI stuff.=20

In other workds, I am not confused into thinking end-user to file server =
only (not server
to device) when I see the term "client/server"

Good reading of the charter thought, very helpful.
