Default Re: IBM PC compatible: Who still uses this term?

it's not a big deal anymore because M$ strongarms any potential machine that could run windows. If it could run windows they force that computer maker to sell a copy of windows with it and ensure that it runs properly...

Since it runs windows, there's no longer a "pc compatible" clause for computers. It's now "runs windows"...
