What is a server for?

One of my naive friends asked me this. As the name suggests, a server is a machine that serves webpages, or web applications. Example of a server is the google blogger server which hosts this blog. A server can be running on different types of hardware ranging from a simple desktop to elaborate blade servers. They can be running different operating systems like Windows or Linux.
