It's a while since I looked at OpenVPN, so this is from unreliable 
memory, but IIRC it uses tap devices under Windows and tun devices under

In the dungeons of Mordor, Sauron bred Orcs with LOLcats to create a
new race of servants. Called Uruk-Oh-Hai in the Black Speech, they
were cruel and delighted in torturing spelling and grammar.
