We now have a proper way to express software and hardware compatibility in Wikidata:
  • comptible with can be used to tell that a device is compatible with a dts file that is part of Linux for instance. Note that we want to avoid having Linux being compatible with way too many devices. Instead it's better to have the devices be compatible with Linux not to have a list of properties that is gigantic. Note that at the time of writing (December 2020), this property is very new, so not everything has been converted to use it yet.

  • Other properties like operating system also do exist
