I have several units of information that I want to put into one, or two well-formed sentences:
- Our product previously only supported Type-X adapters (which are widely used).
- A few weeks ago the company producing Type-X adapters released information stating they will stop producing and distributing Type-X adapters.
- We added support for Type-Y and Type-Z adapters to our product.
if I remember correctly, "because" is the most widely used conjunction to express A is the reason for B, but it is also possible to use as or since in some cases - I'm not a 100% sure when I can use which.
In the sentences I want to build, it's important to note that
Type-X adapters are being discontinued is not the direct or singular reason for
we now support Type-Y and Type-Z - We started to support those because we noticed more customers switching to them, it's meant to "future-proof" our product - but it is relevant to explaining how our product is fit for the future.
My instict says that using because here would be wrong, because it's not a direct cause-effect relation. Using 'since' feels right to me, so I arrive at this:
All models of [product name] build 2014 or later now fully support Type-Y and Type-Z adapters in addition to Type-X. This makes [product name] fit for the future, since [company name] recently announced they will discontinue their Type-X series.
Is this well-formed? Is since the correct conjuntion to use here? What are the rules for when to use because, since, and as?
