Encryption: open-source more secure than closed-source?

I remember reading somewhere that backdoors are left in some commercial encryption software so that the government can easily access encrypted files, saving them man hours and computers cracking the encrypted file to recover the plain text.

Is this true?

Should I use an open-source software TrueCrypt (which my friend advised me to use) over the closed-source MyWinLocker that came with my recently bought Acer Aspire Timeline AS5810TZ-4274 NoteBook?

And how does MyWinLocker compare to TrueCrypt in terms of features?
