It's not server vs desktop

Actually it does not always make sense on server either. If you have some batch-processing operation (slocate indexer on desktop, map-reduce on server) then it's Ok to wait for the compaction - even if it'll take a few minutes.
But if you need response right away (most desktop operations, live request in server's case) then latency is paramount.
