With all due respect (really!), why do you ask a question like that?
Different people have different requirements. In my case I have 2000
secondary school students that I give access to their home folders from
home so that they don't have to do everything via usb sticks. Should I
manage 2000 certificates for this and complicate things for the
students, or should I use a simple web based solution that can run from
any browser on any machine?
OpenVPN is great, I use it for my access to the network from outside,
but it isn't the answer to everything!
