It's interesting how many discussions we've had on this list about how
Wikipedia "can't be trusted" because anyone can edit it, and yet so
often people use Google results as some sort of definitive answer as
to whether or not a phrase is acceptable usage.

There are editors on Wikipedia. You can't say that about the vast
majority of the net. (Not saying Wikipedia is an infallible source,
but I often use it as a starting point for getting a basic
understanding for some topic that I've never heard of before.)

Which (to bring this OT tangent back around to the OP's question) is
why I pointed towards several published (as in hard copy) sources,
including computer books found on Amazon, as points in favor of
Client/Server as the accepted usage.
