Re: PuTTY's days are numbered

A big issue with command-line SSH on Windows is the Windows console is decidedly NOT xterm-compatible, and most hosts you'd be logging into will expect an xterm or at least a VT-100. So you're going to have to use some kind of terminal emulator anyway. PuTTY just happens to package that with an SSH client.
