the next step is to download the openvpn binary. this is going to be the workhorse of the system. i tend to use the default settings for an openvpn configuration for most of the security settings. i have a default openvpn configuration file at /.openvpn/config-2015-10-14-default.ovpn. i have yet to find a reason to need to customize an openvpn setup. the set of defaults is small enough that you can make your changes to a new configuration file (and you should, in my opinion), and then re-run the openvpn utility to generate a new configuration file. there are a couple of ways to do this: by simply renaming the file, or by editing the file and running the openvpn utility again. i prefer the former, because i know for a fact that the network traffic is going to be sent through the openvpn connection, and a bad password could have potentially serious consequences. there is no need to reboot when renaming the file, but running the openvpn utility again is a good idea, as it will start the openvpn daemon which will provide a new configuration file.
the binary we just downloaded is not ready to run. we need to extract it to somewhere on the flash drive. a simple way to do that is to use the command unzip, which lets us extract a gzipped archive to a location on the flash drive.
the first question most people ask is "how does it compare to windows". thats a fair question, but i have a different approach i would like to take with answering it. for me the question is not "how does it compare to windows" or "is it better than windows". its "does it make you feel like youre using linux". the question is subjective, and really boils down to what do you expect out of a file system. for most people, they expect a filesystem to offer their typical activities, and the typical behavior of their applications. a filesystem isnt a backup tool, its a storage system, and its role is to make files easily accessible and to protect them from corruption. these are the most useful features of a filesystem, and something a person would expect from a filesystem. people can also use a filesystem as a backup tool, or as a container for a smaller operating system, but most people are not looking to use a filesystem that way. for this reason, i would say that i think zfs is the best file system out there. some folks ask if its better than ffs. thats a different question, and one that involves using a file system and comparing it to another file system. i think its useful for people to compare the different file systems out there, but theres a better way to ask that question, which is "what are you using it for?". i would say zfs is the best file system when people use it for general storage. i would say ffs is the best file system when people use it for general backup. its probably the most popular of the more common unix file systems. if people want to use a file system for containers, then either zfs or ffs is the best choice. zfs is usually more popular for that use case, as its more complex than ffs, and more complex file systems are usually more difficult to use and support. its also more flexible, as you can mount zfs file systems directly on linux, macos, solaris, freebsd, and many other operating systems. zfs is best used in environments that are going to be long-lived, such as a home directory or a server, because its easier to backup and recover from a zfs volume than it is from a ffs volume. people also tend to have a limited amount of data that they want to backup, so the amount of data that needs to be stored on the backup volume can be minimized. dfs is a newer and lesser known file system, which is targeted at a different use case, and its main strength is its performance. it can be faster than ffs, and be a better choice for data intensive workloads where speed is most important. its much easier to use dfs than zfs, especially in freebsd, as its designed to be used with the zfs file system. dfs is also much easier to use for containers than zfs or ffs. the lack of a filesystem layer also allows for containers to be much more easily created and used. its also a very easy file system to modify, as the entire file system can be reimplemented in user space. dfs can also be used for storage of non-filesystem data, such as database data or even avis.
