I think that's great. As Mullvad mentioned in that page, there's still the issue of "closed-source (and encrypted!) firmware" in the CPU, but hopefully that'll change one day too. The open source firmware on a server platform is a good step towards that direction. The only negative thing I can say about it is that it still requires a degree of trust on the user's part, since there's no way for them to verify that a VPN provider is actually using that open source firmware.
