@vhutheesing I can't advise on Windows, but I have not had any problems on OS X.
In terms of free and open source software (FOSS), as with any software, you should think about who the authors are and whether you trust them. I say this because your comment indicated, to me at least, that there is trepidation on your part with respect to FOSS. I can't say whether FOSS or proprietary is better (how do we define that, anyway?), but I'm sure any of us can think of several examples of either being really good or really bad.
Others, please feel free to comment and add or correct anything I've said above.
Let us know whether you decide to go forth with R Studio!
