One subscriber offered the following definition:

> "A server is a networked computer system that allows multiple access to
> shared applications and data."

Another thought that it was a bit too narrow and suggested the following:

> "A server is a component of a computer network that allows multiple access to
> shared services such as applications, data, printing, and communications
> (fax, telecommunications, etc.)."

It was my understanding that the original poster wanted something
basic, *very* basic, and which even omitted any reference to
networks. In that case, I think both of the above are too much.
I suggest

"A server is a computer that stores programs and data that can
be accessed and used by other computers."
