OpenVPN and Linux

I am getting my first experience with the OpenVPN client on Linux at $new_job. As with most things Mac, I got pretty spoiled by the Viscosity VPN client on macOS, so having to manually configure things on Linux seemed a bit daunting at first (I had used the network configuration GUI in GNOME at first to try and set up my VPN connections, but it failed for both home and work connections), but with a little RTFM I got things running pretty smoothly.
