1) The PPA is on launchpad and is copen for all to review
2) The code is on github https://github.com/slacka/WoeUSB and the
source is also reviewable and open for comments by others.

Big difference in transparency with OpenSource where the code is open
for review, whereas Win-folks have to trust the binaries they install
without hesitation. You only install things from the Microsoft Store?


With Windows Stuff, I always run them through Virus Total
before trusting them
