desk at work to do your work on. It comes from the old days of dumb terminals. It just means a computer on a desk at work.

The only time I've seen a need to differentiate was when Windows 3.11 and Windows NT were first out. You had Windows NT which was the server software, and Windows for Workstations which was the PC software, a small difference in capabilities. Same applied to Windows 3.11 for Work Groups.

this is the security sentinel in the middle of the network. A server is another computer that provides any other service to computers on the network, mail server, file server, printer server, Internet server, etc. A client is any other computer in the network using services from any of the servers. Some servers can also be clients of other servers, eg a Backup server for backing up the other servers.
