i just had a look at both this week. this are the main differences, imho:
* openvpn can use certificates, tinc does not
* tinc only needs 1 port for multiple incoming connections, openvpn needs a
seperate port and configuration file for each tunnel
* tinc is more suitable for a peer-to-peer VPN with more than two
participants: when you are connected to one peer, and need to send a packet
to another part of the VPN tinc can automatically create the connection to
the other one.
* in contrast openvpn is more oriented towards a single tunnel.
* tinc has been criticized (http://tinc.nl.linux.org/security) for having some
security flaws, i have not found any security analysis of openvpn.
i think it mainly depends if you want a simple tunnel between 2 hosts
(openvpn) or if the VPN should cover more than 2 hosts (tinc).
