VPN that works reliably with Linux

I am running Ubuntu 12.04 w/Gnome - I use proXPN for Windows machines, but have never been able to get it to establish a connection w/the Ubuntu laptop I have. I'm looking for recommendations for VPNs that work reliably with Linux where set-up is basic enough for a Linux novice to understand.

How do I setup monitor "gridlines" on Linux?

How do I setup monitor "gridlines" on Linux? Nvidia has software for Windows that let's you divide your monitor into virtual sub-monitors or set gridlines so that if you maximize a window in that certain section, it only maximizes to that particular area. This is particularly useful on big monitors. Does anyone know of any utilities on Linux that do this or how to configure KDE or Gnome (or I suppose another window manager) to do this? [more inside]
