When you say that you have a small budget, how small is it?
1) You'd be surprised at what you can get with a very small budget.
2) You'd be surprised at how expensive it will be to install and maintain your own tools, year-over-year.
Explore all your options before jumping.

Sorry, but that comment is so out-dated it is no longer funny. That would mean that Windows is vastly superior to Linux or that sex with a prostitute is better than sex with your wife.
Although there are commercial products that are better than OTRS, there many that do not compare at all to OTRS.[/code]
