This statement of yours shows me that you have *no* grasp of how X applications work. Machine 'a' in this case (the "server" machine)
Yes. So? I am not debating this. You are attempting again to distract from the discussion with a strawman.
No one is saying there is a qualitative difference between between any two methods of network transfer. That is *your* strawman. The difference is that in an application server scenario the application is *not* transferred to and run by the client. In the file server scenario it *is*.

Strawman. The argument is about *what* is transferred, not *how* it is transferred.
You want me to give an example for something I am not arguing?
A strawman argument is typically used by a troll to attempt to draw discussion away from the real subject by creating and then tearing down a bogus example that is totally unrelated to what is being discussed. That is precisely what you are doing.
No, idiot. The difference is that one scenario requires a network transfer of the application and one does *not*.
