While I can appreciate the sentiments, it's not always this easy. For example, at my company, our checkpoint VPN devices don't have a 64bit client. So, if you are running a 64-bit OS, you cannot VPN in from it. The solution is for us to upgrade our checkpoint VPN system at work, but budget does not allow for this at present.

But something like the above, shouldn't be all that prevalent among home users.

Hi pparks1. Thanks for bringing that up. I used to use a VPN to connect with work. But we dropped that out of practicality. The few employees who need the connection have been using 'logmein' and it works like a charm with Windows 7 (32 at least).
