redhat sales never awnser me :-(

but, did you the notice the EXPORT CONTROL paragraph ?

as you could notice, i'm from cuba, i'm a cuban citizen and also i live in cuba, so , as
explicity say in the EXPORT CONTROL paragraph, i'm avoided to use the RHEL, also the beta
:-(, i can understant that RedHat can sell it's soft under GPL but restricting who can get
it (as Lindows do) but the BETA version is public !!!??? so how can the BETA public
version under the GPL can also be restrict it by the US EXPORT CONTROL ?

sorry this offtopic but I need some anwser, at least comunity anwser, because peoples who
supose to anwser me didn't do that.

thanks
roger
