Some professional experience might change your tune about the approachability of open source.

You'll likely be tasked at some point on a team building a large system that has components that are closed, components that your team is writing, and open source components. Inevitably some interaction between those spheres will lead to a failing test case (or bug report). You'll be able to see inside the open source (and ask informed meaningful questions about it on the Internet), see inside your team's work and discuss it with your team, and have to trust the documentation of the closed stuff.

Your definition of which sphere has a lack of approachability will change rapidly :)

Ontario School Bans Wi-Fi 287

St. Vincent Euphrasia elementary school in Meaford, Ont. is the latest Canadian school to decide to save its students from the harmful effects of Wi-Fi by banning it. Schools from universities on down have a history of banning Wi-Fi in Ontario. As usual, health officials and know-it-all scientists have called the move ridiculous. Health Canada has released a statement saying, "Wi-Fi is the second most prevalent form of wireless technology next to cell phones. It is widely used across Canada in schools, offices, coffee shops, personal dwellings, as well as countless other locations. Health Canada continues to reassure Canadians that the radiofrequency energy emitted from Wi-Fi equipment is extremely low and is not associated with any health problems."
