Open Source Fun

Some of the best things are free!

Open Source

This server and its software is built on open source software. Open source has revolutionized the user and business experiance.


Open Source GitLab

This site is providing a free and anonymous GitLab to work on your projects.



Linux is generally free and open source. It is the operating system that is powering the webserver running this website.


Build and Share Ideas

The entire goal of this website is a pet project to help build awareness, development, and expand connections of open source software.


This site was designed to raise awareness and collaborate on creating new software and ideas with unlimited potential.

We will be working on some basics projects just for fun. We are welcome to any new ideas or projects you would like to see happen.

Open Source Fun is offering this site as a resource for free.

That means that Preston is personally hosting the server and paying for its power and internet out of his pocket. This is all because he believies in Open Source software and the fun in creating it.


This website is built using Open Source Software and Server.

This site is almost completly open source. The server runs on ESXI 6.5 (the next hypervisor rebuild will be with XenServer). The server itself ( is a Ubuntu Server 16.04 installed with Apache, PHP, and WordPress. The Router/Firewall in front of this server is Vyos (The open source continuation of Vyatta). Network security is checked by Onion. Network monitoring and logging is performed by Observium. Open Source and transparent is the way to be!
