This engineer likes to show how much he knows....and likes to make sure everyone knows. He takes every opportunity to point out typos (before the final editorial review), and he likes to wax himself poetic. Normally, I thank him for his suggestions, but on this particular matter, I would like to have a little explanation as to why I changed his wording.

Just curious; why does the engineer insist on his usage?

Subject: Client/Server vs. Server/Client
I have an engineer that insists on calling this a Server/Client System. Is there any difference between Client/Server and Server/Client?
Thanks In Advance
