compatible: able to exist or occur together without conflict; able to have a harmonious relationship: well-suited

I hate the way this word is used within the computer industry. Not only is there a misunderstanding of what it means to be "compatible", but there is also an oversimplification when it comes to 3rd party "accessories", and this holds to both Windows and Macs. In other words, sometimes compatible means "it just works" and sometimes it means "maybe, maybe not. Depends. Could happen, but could also drive you to insanity!"

- AppleNova is the best Mac-users forum on the internet. We are smart, educated, capable, and helpful. We are also loaded with smart-alecks! :)
