Sorry, I should elaborate on that to keep this on-topic.

FLOSS or Windows cluster, I think the idea is the same. But then
again, how many people in that age demographic would have ever had
access to Windows Clustering software? Wouldn't that make it more
likely that you'd pay more for an admin for the Windows Cluster?

That, appart from access to source code and that kind of thing, is the
only problem I can think of.
