It is "Mac OS X" vs "Mac OS X Server".

There is no product called "OS X Client".

No need for nasty words here; bhines is correct, there's no such thing as OS X Client. In the case of the article, however, it helped to distinguish it from Server, so I left it in.

You might want to look up the definition of "Troll". It is more closely related to your post than mine. :)

Well, no, there's no product named "Mac OS X Client." But everyone knows what it means, and it makes sense to use that phrase to distinguish it from Mac OS X Server. At Apple, the people who support Mac OS X Server use that distinction all the time.

BTW, since 1999, there is been no product called "Macintosh" either. Yet you would not be wrong in calling a Power Mac G4 or an iBook a Macintosh, would you?
