Oh, no no! It's nothing like it! See, a mainframe is OLD! Cloud Computing
is NEW and therefore MUCH BETTER!
Realistically, it's not quite an exact metaphor, but there are definitely
some striking similarities. But "thin client" has never really gone away;
it's maintained its place and usefulness ever since its inception. It's
just with Cloud Computing that we're seeing "thin client" come around again
as the Hammer to End All Nails.

Isn't a mainframe the whole idea of cloud computing?
