cross-platform compatibility

interoperability or platform-independence; the ability for devices or software applications to work with more than one hardware platform or operating system. Broad compatibility with various systems is critical to having a large market for a product (reaching your entire user audience). Interoperability is important in achieving a critical mass of users, especially in groupware and other internet applications, where two or more people interacting will require some level of compatibility in order to communicate or share data.
