No, I don't mean that. I meant that you could play with PIA a little before moving on to Mullvad. Maybe while your letter with cash was making its way to them It's not like Windows. There is no PIA client to install. Their instructions just explain how to install OpenVPN for Network Manager, restart Network Manager, and configure a connection for your VPN service. Network Manager basically provides a simple GUI to create an OpenVPN config file. It's not that bad, really. And you probably won't break anything by playing with it until it works.
