Old thread, but I also really appreciate the simplicity. Configuring wireguard takes a little knowledge of routing (either iptables or firewalld, etc) but is vastly simpler to understand compared to OpenVPN. When things aren't working, there's a lot fewer thing to check.

Oh and it's blazing fast. I often times get better connection speeds when connected to the wireguard VPN than not, presumably because the TCP overhead all happens in the cloud rather than locally where latencies are much higher and bandwidth is more limited.

The roaming of Wireguard also makes it completely seamless. I'll often forget I'm even connected for days at a time.
