I lived in Venezuela for over 30 years until about 6 months ago, so I know
a few of the people involved in the Canaima distro. AFAIK it's basically
Debian with a few localization changes. The reason for its development is
largely political but I seriously doubt that it has deliberate backdoors
(the people I know would not be party to that), though of course you can
never be sure. Most users even within the government are still on Windows,
in fact at least until recently some government websites still only worked
properly with Internet Exploder :-)
