OpenSSH/PuTTY/SSH - What's your preference?

SSH (Secure Shell) is the now ubiquitous program for logging into or executing commands on a remote machine. It provides secure encrypted communications between two untrusted hosts over an insecure network, replacing the hideously insecure telnet/rlogin/rsh alternatives. 

Which is your favorite/preferred SSH client? Why? Post them below

My preferred one is definitely PuTTY. It's reliable and has a neat UI for key generation, allows you to save a configuration and use them, allows telenet, has sftp option too.

I use iTerm - a terminal client on MacOS. There were times when my office made it compulsory to make use of the PuTTy client. 

No specific reason that it's my favorite.

By the way, openSSH and SSH are not SSH clients.
