I ssem to rememebr some issue about the fact that 1-2-3 was
copy-protected (you had to insert disk 1 when you wanted to run it, even
if you'd installed it on the hard disk), and that some Governement
departments wouldn't use copy-protected software (good for them!). Maybe
the 'Government Edition' was a copyable version or something.
