Techopedia Explains Bug Compatible

Although "bug compatible" might sound like a positive term, because compatibility is typically positive, it is actually a criticism of the software. Companies are supposed to create successive versions that remove and eliminate bugs from a design. When they fail, someone might use the term "bug compatible" to criticize the lack of improvement in development.

This term is similar to the term "bug for bug compatible," another derogatory term that indicates all of the bugs in the previous version are still present in the successive version of the software product.
