Putty is the worst ssh client ever!

Putty can’t remember the last IP address you used. It can’t remember anything. the buffer is horrendously low. adding a ssh key should be straight forward. remembering your fucking login ID should be straight forward. remembering the fucking keys!  Even the location of the keys?  changing the color scheme should be easy, and able to handle it on the fly.  Tabs, for Christ’s sake fucking tabs.  Copy and Paste shouldn’t fill up the fucking history!  If you copy don’t paste it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  Oh you have to convert pem keys to a native format.

After that little rant I’ve found a replacement, and it does everything that putty can’t – mobaXterm: http://mobaxterm.mobatek.net/download.html
