  Snort -- The poor man's intrusion-detection system
Snort was originally developed as a network intrusion-detection system designed to run on Linux platforms, but has been successfully ported to a number of other environments, including Windows, BSD Unix, Solaris/SunOS and even MacOS X, among others.
One of the greatest advantages (or disadvantages, depending upon your point of view!) to Snort is the fact that its open-source nature allows security professionals around the world to develop customized rules and contribute them to the community's knowledge.
I agree Snort is open source, however I think it would be misleading to describe it as a poor-man's IDS.

 SANS Institute - Intrusion Detection FAQ: Running Snort under Windows
Snort is a very command line oriented which means that the user needs to understand what they want to get out of the tool and how the tool is to report detects before implementing it.
Snort is also able to perform content filtering as evidenced by the number of "anonymous ftp" alerts I received from starting my FTP server on my snort-enabled system.
The reporting capabilities of snort are somewhat limited and can seem confusing to the average user due to it’s design of creating a new directory for every host detect and the technical detail in the alerts.ids file.
