Those that can, do. Those that can't, complain.
What is Open Source and why is it good to use it? Open Source is free and costs nothing, why should I pay for any service? I like Microsoft Windows and have no knowledge in Linux, so what is open Source good for me?
Many questions and mostly no proper answers as today's Open Source software is mainly done by experts for experts, comes with lacking support and many bad side effects. But that's not what it has to be like. 40° forty degrees develops and works with Open Source software for many years now and is specialized in smaller Microsoft Windows environments.
To answer the questions above: Open Source simply means you get the source code of the software and you are free to develop and modify it to your needs, which is a big advantage in customizing any software according to your needs. And no, Open Source doesn't meen it's free of costs. Many are, but there are also commercial Open Source projects and professional support will always have it's costs as those professionals need their income, too. If you have the knowledge and time to, the tools and documentations for mainly anything are available on the internet for free, but you'd be warned.
And don't worry about Microsoft Windows as your operating system. There are plenty of great Open Source solutions for Windows - and we know them.
