SCCM 2012 exclude collection

I am pretty fresh in SCCM 2012 R2, and need some help with collections.

In my company, someone have setup to deploy client applications to user collctions. Each application has a corresponding user collection, with membership rules linked to an AD security group. The point is that users who are member of that group should have applications deployed no matter where they are logging on to.

That works fine, but we also have some special users that has RDP access to some servers. The bad thing is of course that a lot of client applications are installed also if they log on to a server.

In my mind, it should be possible to add some exclude rules/filter somewhere, so that the client applications will only be deployed to Client OS (Win7/8) and not Server OS. Looking at the rule for the User collections for the application deployment, i cannot add exclude rules for device collections. We already have device collections based on OS, but as I see I cannot mix user and device collections in one membership rule.

Since the application deployment are linked to user collections, how can I prevent client applications from installing on servers?
Maybe silly question, but SCCM 2012 is pretty new to me.

This is simple.

In application setting, select only OS-es (windows 7 x86, x64, 8 ...).
