Is there any difference between 'compared to' and 'compared with'?

I generally use 'with'. As that dictionary reference says,Note the 'for some'. That 'some' excludes people whose teachers drummed into their pupils the dubious belief that English words 'should' reflect their Latin roots (cum - 'with').[it is] very close in meaning to compare someone or something to someone or something, but for some connotes stronger contrast.
