Internet & Networking "After four long years, here comes a new version of PuTTY, the popular free telnet/SSH client for Windows and Unix platforms. PuTTY 0.61 brings new features, bug fixes, and compatibility updates for Windows 7 and various SSH server software. The new version supports SSH-2 authentication using GSSAPI, on both Windows and Unix. Users in a Kerberos realm should now be able to use their existing Kerberos single sign-on in their PuTTY SSH connections."

How about a decent terminal window

Whilst I have not used Windows since XP, one of my biggest complaints about it was the absolutely horrid terminal window. It can not be re-sized, window border would not accept any XP border themes, fixed width fonts, so forth.

So has anyone ever developed a decent terminal window for Windows, something approaching an xterm? Is the terminal any better in newer versions of Windows?
