What's the definition of "desktop oriented solution" or "local solution"?

If someone writes a script to install apache, php, mysql and ChurchInfo 
onto your local Linux PC; would that be called a "local solution"?

The install script for Simply Accounting 2008 (Windows software) 
installs MySQL; the appropriate service is auto-started everytime 
machine boots.  Does that mean it is no longer a "desktop solution"?
