Helping people with computers... one answer at a time.
Read the article that everyone's commenting on.
It may seem weird Simon, but they're completely correct. There was once a time when Apple marketed one of their desktop computers on the back of the fact that it could only be exported to nations with most favored status because it could do a gigaflop. Honestly, the Russians really were so far behind at the time that US home computers would have significantly improved their military potential.
Aside from the fact that the new AES adopted by the US Govt and the world at large is called "Rijndael" and originated in Belgium, did it ever occur to anyone that most US namebrand computers with OEM Windows are built, set up and bundled OUTSIDE THE UNITED STATES? The disk images must have been sent out to be installed before the machine is boxed. Is there a "non export version" of a consumer durable in today's globalized world?
Today this is a "non issue" and the absurd "export version" tag should have been quietly dropped.
