EISA is a very cool bus (and is almost on topic, being ratified as a
standard in early 1989, to combat MCA). It is 100% backward compatible
with ISA.

There are standoffs at the bottom of the EISA card connectors so that ISA
cards won't make electrical contact with the EISA part of the socket. EISA
cards are slotted so as to fit all the way down in.
