The pros and cons of open source

I think the pros of having an open source operating system much outweigh the cons. Actually, I personally believe that there are no cons to having an open source operating system. The pros are that people can access, learn from, and alter the current operating system that they paid their own money to acquire. However, I feel that while having open source software and programs is useful for people learning to code and people with specific needs, having the ability to copy a program is not fair to it’s developer.
