Re: Just change the name

I think it would - the days of cutting off your enemy's head are over.

Unless you live in a totalitarian state.

It is all a question of trust, and on a simple level, you wouldn't put the keys to the safe in the hands of an organisation physically located and ultimately controlled by governments who's response to demands for freedom is to put dissenters in salt mines or run over them with tanks.

Equally I wouldn't run chunks of critical national infrastructure with systems originating from the same places.
