I should probably post this in technical, but... I freed my IDE drives by removing all the master / slave jumpers, now my desktop won't boot up; have I done something wrong?
The sad truth is that slavery is alive and well in the modern world, but this madness sweeps it under the carpet because we will no longer have the words to describe it. What you can't talk about, you can't fix.
I don't see any replies with the relevant explanation but...
The intention to not offend with this terminology is actually where the "Client/Server" movement came from. If you think about it, it is pretty much the same thing backwards with different labelling. The Client makes requests, the server services those requests. A master makes a request, the slave fulfills the request.
My first observation of it in the wild was about 1976, from IBM. From what I've seen, nobody changed existing terminology but all new architectures used the new improved politically correct terminology. For example, the Unibus on Digital Equipment Corp PDP and VAX machines had bus master, slave devices, SLBI/SLBO, SWO (slave lower byte in, slave lower byte out, slave word out) etc. None of these changed names but Digital followed through with client server model in software services and for all new products.
I was suprised when I discovered Raspberry Pi in 2012 that they have an I2C interface, which contains MOSI, MISO (master in slave out, ...) pins. Wikipedia says that it (I2C) was invented about 1982 by Philips (same era but European and somewhat detached from the issue).
I suspect that things will follow the pattern from 1976 this time, but new technologies will arise in importance because they are more politically correct than (say) I2C. The old technologies will die for emotional reasons instead of technical merit.
I also had to look it up so didn't answer. I feel bad stealing one that I didn't know myself. However, there is no logic to that feeling and I have no issue with somebody else winning with a word they didn't already know.
In short, I think you should just say it and do tomorrow.
