The original one, as a matter of fact. And (namedrop ;) I happen to know
him, so if you've got any feature requests, pass them on to me!

There is one important point: apparently it's not legal to use PuTTY in
the US at the moment due to laws restricting the import and export of
strong encryption. I'll check that but I believe it's the case. For those
of you outside the States, though, I'd recommend PuTTY as it's very
configurable and pretty fast too.
