I removed this line:

Today, virtually all systems are simultaneously client and server and the terms are amusing but of much less import.

It is just not true, and that's not just my opinion. Many systems, even modern systems still use the client/server model. IRC clients are operated by users to connect to IRC servers. Web browsers are HTTP clients that connect to web servers, or HTTP servers. The author of the snippet I removed was probably trying to imply that the client/server distinction was blurred with peer networking.

I also plan to remove "Of course" from the beginning of the article, since it implies the relation of client and server is obvious, whereas it might not be obvious for the reader.
