Follow-up: I just noticed that lots of Google's "server/client" results aren't for that literal string (I hate that they don't respect quotes regarding punctuation). They're for things like SQL Server client, Terminal Server client, etc. So the preference for "client/server" is probably much stronger than the Google results suggest.
