Don't forget, Mac too! Tunnelblick is a great Mac frontend, places a little tunnel icon on the menubar, light at the end of the tunnel indicates the connection is up.

I have OpenVPN setup on my Linode and then connect from my laptop, home fileserver, and wife's desktop. This allows each machine to send outgoing mail through the Linode as well as provinding seemless connections to my home LAN from my laptop when away from home.

Another plus is being able to quickly scp a file from the Linode to any specific machine at home rather then just to the machine port 22 is forwarded to.
