-> Here's my colleague's reponse:
-> A server is a networked computer system that allows multiple access
-> to shared applications and data.
A server is like a library with storage space for lots and lots of
books, photocopy machines, typewriters you can use to write letters or
even books of your own, pay phones that can connect you with the outside
world, and maybe even lockers where you can store your things while
you're using the library.
