    Notepad, et. al. in the Store is less about having these apps in the store, and more about separating them out from the operating system bundle. This, then, makes them easily available for use within the next-gen Lite OS.

    Brad, I want to warn you against using something like a Raspberry Pi for running your network-wide VPN solution. Because you have a 500/300 connection (if I remember correctly), it'll be too much to ask for low-power devices. The encryption would require more power from the CPU, and unless you have the Pi4, the Ethernet connection is bandwidth limited.

    You would need something more like an x86-based solution with hardware-accelerated encryption (e.g. AES-NI) if you want to stay closer to your speed tier. OpenVPN has the biggest impact on speeds, while other options like IKEv2 IPsec and Wireguard are better.

    This of course also depends on if you can find a service that can handle those speeds.
