Then they switched to Windows/Intel right? that would mean the opposite was true, there were no back doors and they refused to allow any to be installed.

New Intel Chips from Israel to Increase Capabilities of Laptops and Cellphones
The first Intel product to put Israel "on the map", says Friedman, was Banias
, better known as the Pentium M microprocessor
, the microprocessor introduced in 2003 that arguably kicked off the notebook era.
The more complicated products get, the more likely it is that teams from around the Intel world — notably the US and India, as well as Israel — will be working on products together, Friedman says.
That appears to be the case with the upcoming Haswell processors
: though they were largely designed in the US, the 22nm tri-gate 3D transistors inside them (and which are already in use in Ivy Bridge processors) are made in Israel, at Kiryat Gat's Fab 28 plant.
