[Fusioninventory-user] A proposal for the opposite term to 'Server Mode'.

    The first thing to keep in mind is that all the terms do not have an 
opposite. Respond to the question "what is the opposite of blue?" is, 
therefore, impossible. Respond to the question "what is the opposite of 
'Server Mode'?" is, in the same way, impossible (at least for me).

    I think that the solution happens for choosing another term for 
'Server mode' that has an opposite one.

    'Background Mode' instead of 'Server Mode' and 'Foreground Mode' as 
a new term could be a solution. I think this 'Background/Foreground 
Mode' solution is clear and does not conflict with the scheduled 
executions; the FusionInventory Agent could be scheduled launching it in 
Background Mode or launching it in 'Foreground Mode' (anacron or cron in 
*nix, task schedule in Microsoft Windows, etc.).

    It's only a proposal, of course. Best regards.
