Sure it might be confusing, because that's not how the logic goes in the
Microsoft world. Over there, the big machine acting as Terminal Server
thing is the server, and the Remote Desktop client, which provides the
actual display, is the client... while on X11, it's the complete
opposite. I'm not going to pretend that it couldn't be confusing.
