    From the full quote I sense he is talking about the implementations.
    He is very likely talking about the code. Not that the protocol itself is amazing, but OpenVPN and IPSec are commonly bashed for their code bloat and large size, which is not what you want in anything working with security.

    Just noticed that Arch picked up wireguard using DKMS: https://www.archlinux.org/packages/?q=wireguard

    Edit: Noticed it's in Debian Sid as well, and has been for quite a while. https://packages.debian.org/sid/wireguard

    compared to the horrors that are OpenVPN and IPSec, [WireGuard is] a work of art.

    Phoronix: Linus Torvalds Is Hoping WireGuard Will Be Merged Sooner Rather Than Later
