Sorry, but this is patently untrue. We have had cards that have a Mac model and a PC model, and neither work in the other, even though the slots are the same and they both have drivers. It may be that many (maybe most) cards are designed to work in both PC's and Macs, but it is not true to say there is no such thing as a card that will only work in one and not the other.
