    SAP R/3 was born as an "open system" as that term was defined in the late 1980's, and its user interface was XWindows. The terms client and server were used with more or less the opposite meaning as they are today - the "server" was the device that served the user and the client was the process that generated what was to be served. Although SAP had to adopt MS Windows in place of xWindows, its use of open systems "client" terminology continues, preesumably because changing was more trouble than it was worth.
