I remember when client-server first came out. It seemed a bad idea to me,
because it seemed an inefficient use of processing power with all those
pieces of CPU, as it were, sitting partly unused in someone's desktop.
There's also the question of the human capital required to maintain all
those distributed computers run by users with widely varying degrees of
knowledge.

To me, it seems a natural correction to return to the network. The risk, of
course, is that when something gets messed up, it will get messed up
centrally. The benefit is presumably that centralization means professional
management by knowledgeable experts, something that can't be claimed for
most individual users in most organizations.
