Mother boards are the main component in a computer. Alternatively referred to as the mb, mainboard, mobo, mobd, backplane board,base board, main circuit board, planar board, system board, or a logic board on Apple computers! The mother board is like the "glue" that holds everything together like the rams stick to it the graphics card stick to it.
As computers advanced, so have motherboards. No, there is no such thing as a fatherboard when talking about a computer. However, there is such a thing as a daughterboard!
