This software is compatible with/on Windows 7, but incompatible with/on Mac OS X.

Should I use with or on for above sentence?

    Note that compatible on does not make sense unless you also use or imply with somewhere in the sentence.

    Example

    Software A is compatible with Software B on Windows 7 but they are not compatible [with each other] on Mac OS X.
