Deepin

Recently I saw an article about cool looking linux distro, and after downloading it to test it on VM, just found out that it is from china?! Read multiple quora users wondering if it contains any spyware and/or anything else phishy... even OS is open source, there is still pause to install it even in VM.

It is interesting how location of developers can influence our decision to get / use software?!

Anyone else experienced anything similar?
