    Master/Slave

    I have learned that 'Master/Slave' was chosen to be
    the most egregious example of political correctness in 2004
    by the Global Language Monitor.
    It seems it refers to the relation between the host computer
    and the terminal computers.
    I wonder what is the politically correct term for that.
    Thank you.

    They didn't suggest one: http://www.cnn.com/2003/TECH/ptech/1...ter.term.reut/

    I think the issue was ridiculed so much that it is unlikely to catch on.

    My suggestion:
    Queen/Worker
