Wouldn't selling Windows-based control systems (i.e., ones containing US intellectual property) to Iran be technically a violation of arms control treaties?
WASHINGTON - A blustering President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad vowed "war without end" and terrorism unchained Tuesday if anybody messes with Iran. But Israel and the U.S. wouldn't dare go after mighty Iran's nuclear sites, Ahmadinejad said in a hectic round of appearances and sitdowns with Western reporters around Manhattan.
Israel is a pipsqueak nation and the U.S. too worn out by wars in Afghanistan and Iraq to get serious about Iran, he added.
"The Zionist regime is a very small entity on the map, even to the point that it doesn't really factor into our equation," Ahmadinejad said. The U.S. also is not a threat, he said, since the U.S. "doesn't understand what war looks like. When a war starts it knows no limits," he said.

They generally expose some capabilities to client PCs but applications built to talk on them usually only run on windows because windows is everywhere and a well understood target platform these days.
