I haven't yet tried Windows 7. I haven't been blessed with the experience. However, I do know that Win 2000/XP both had VPN functionality bundled with the OS--you could click on "Make New Connection" under Network Properties and create a VPN adapter for PPTP or IPSec/L2TP VPNs.
But I want to know if Windows 7 also provides built-in SSL VPN functionality as well, since SSL VPNs are all the rage now. Many cable routers now act as SSL VPN endpoints.
If this functionality is not available, is Msoft planning it in a later Service Pack? Or do we have to wait till Windows 8?
