Let me summarize it this way: I sell network tunnels of multiple
types, and OpenVPN is what I use for my own home tunnel.

    - Like CIPE, OpenVPN uses UDP for transport, avoiding the TCP/TCP
      issues.  However, to avoid UDP-application/UDP issues OpenVPN
      can optionally use TCP for transport.

    - OpenVPN is easy to build, easy to configure, and easy to
      maintain.  It uses the 'tun' module included with every Linux
      distribution I know of.  Kernel upgrades do not require any
      OpenVPN changes or rebuilding.

    - OpenVPN glides gracefully through network breakages, remote-peer
      reboots, and dynamic IP changes.

    - OpenVPN supports Linux, *BSD, MacOS, Solaris, and Windows.

    - OpenVPN uses SSL/TLS certificates for authentication, with
      negotiated encryption keys.  (For simple setups, it also
      supports fixed-key operation.  It can even be run without
      authentication or encryption.)

    - OpenVPN supports optional LZO compression.  Net uncompressed
      data transfer rates sometimes exceed wirespeed.

    - OpenVPN supports bridging tunnels.  The tunnel type is a
      run-time option, not a compile-time option.

    - OpenVPN is under active development and maintenance, with a
      substantial user community and active forums.
