Agreed. Although if we're primarily talking about a number crunching application here with a network layer to communicate back and forth, I'm not seeing a ton of difficulty reworking that to a different platform.

But it's all speculation based on the concept that EA is being honest about the whole "has to be done a server" thing, with the "has" being the critical part. I haven't seen one rational explanation for that word as of yet.
