Simple choice. If you do not like the fact that Comodo, as a commercial entity, choose to not make their source code publicly available, then don't use their products.

A quick google revealed a listing of 123 currently available OTFE products. Of these, only 9 have made their source code available. That leaves 114 that have chosen to be secure in how they publicly define their software.

You mentioned two very good products in your post - TrueCrypt and FreeOTFE. Both are excellent products and worthy of your full consideration.

Not everything "commercial in confidence" is bad. Similarly, not everything open is good.  ;)

What are your export policies relating to this product and its encryption mechanisms?  Are downloads restricted to U.S. ip address only?  Last I read, even web browsers were restricted to the level of encryption permissible in their product.  Hence the requirement for an Escrow key.

You state there are no back doors, but how can you legally export this product without an Escrow Key?

export laws do not restrict exporting this product as long its not exported to some of the forbidden countries.
