    Uh huh, could this have somthing to do with the hard drive encryption sytem maybe? After all, the NSA doesn't like people to have things it can't read :eyebrow:

    Maybe, or could be a nice bit of marketing. I mean if your software has been approved by the likes of the NSA and meets DoD approval, then it gives it a lot more credibilty. Then again, the NSA might have just had to tick a few boxes to approve it for government use.
