New user - help understanding the stack / getting started

Hi all,

I am new to the LoraWan community, I currently have a Dragino LP8 and a handful of sensors.
I am wanting to set up my own private LoraWan server that resides on my local network. I am having trouble understanding the ChirpStack software stack.
Do I need to install the 3 software components or can I get away with the network server and the application server? Can I run the software stack on a windows machine, or does it require a linux distro?

Any help would be great, thanks in advance!
