PC compatible

PC compatible

A misguided reference to a PC. The term IBM compatible is more accurate, because IBM made the first PC. Even that has little meaning today, because Intel and Microsoft set the PC standards, and IBM exited the PC business. The correct way to refer to a PC is to call it a "PC." See PC clone.
