Are the Vitamix containers interchangeable?

If you try to use other than the smart containers with these machines the motor base would not detect a container and it won’t run the motor.
The 20 oz. blending cup is compatible only with the S- series of Vitamix and the cup is interchangeable only if used with a personal cup adaptor. While the SELF detects cup can only work with the Smart System Machines.
The classic tall full-sized containers can work only with the older designs such as the Classic series and cannot fit the newer Vitamix machines.
