RE: Enterprise VPN
Not trying to assert that OpenVPN solves all enterprise needs but I have found it to be quite excellent in our corporate environment in combination with the WiKID two-factor auth. We have a handful of clients running it on a variety of platforms including Windows 7 with multiple configurations depending on access levels.
I tried some experimenting with L2TP/IPsec first but got fed up with all the issues surrounding it. (The impression I got was "buy Cisco"... no thanks). The only downside I've found with OpenVPN in my travels is that it's not exactly supported on smartphones :(
