        Would trust it as much as I trust software from Blighty or the US. Slightly more than I would trust software from Russia and orders of magnitude more than I would trust software from virtually any other country.

        Suspect if I was running a Middle Eastern dictatorship I would be a little more leery though and buy it through a reseller instead.
