In the eighties PC's were considered intruders by the typical data processing dept but by 1990 most were beginning to make some acomodation and granting network access to PCs - as dumb terminals. The full scale replacement of mainframes by client server didn't really get going until the mid '90s. In between PCs got more and more function (albeit still accessing mainframe enterprise applications) and ultimately in many shops the mainframes would be replaced by PC servers. This transition was largely complete by the turn of the century when the mainframe/high-end PC server distinction largely vanished. (talk) 23:02, 23 March 2010 (UTC)
