"decently configured" probably excludes my application, where I have a
very limited function server (an Arduino)
Web services are a convenient, nearly universal, scheme to communicate
between boxes. It's not always in the context of a traditional "fat
server/thin client" sort of model.
In fact, I'd say that the client end (the web browser) typically has
more computing and display horsepower (on a per connection basis) than
the server in most cases. Even a fairly big server serving 100s of
pages per second to iPhone type clients has a more horsepower on the
receiving end than the sending end.
