    So I have been spoiled by Terminal on my Macbook Air but my main computer is Windows based. I don't really care for putty that much compared to Terminal. Is there something better for Windows?

    OhMyZsh is a shell replacement and is super nice. Replaces in program but yeah, I recommend people use it regardless.

    Virtualbox with a shell-only version of your favorite Debian or RHEL distro....

    This. We rolled it out globally at work the our nocs got rid of the Linux desktops and were forced to move to Windows. I've been using it since 2006.

    SecureCRT is a very mature paid product...

    For free, I can also recommend: Bitvise SSH Client

    Just curious what in PuTTY do you not care about? Are you looking for special features? Its free and has been around a loooong time and it does what its designed to do: provide the user an ssh/telnet <gasp telnet!> terminal window to a server and thats it. Nothing fancy.

    We got rid of putty at work and started using SecureCRT for the tab ability. We can be logged into 30 / 40 devices at any one time, so having them in tabs is easier than having the same amount of open putty windows. Not sure if they have added that feature yet, as it's been about 6 years since I downloaded putty.

    Definitely SecureCRT - there's always some curses-style gui that doesn't work in anything else besides SecureCRT and a proper terminal

    You *must* have a few stacked 26" + LCD screens to be able to view and manage 30 to 40 tabbed Terminal screens running...thats awesome! ;) No, the newest puTTY does not support tabbed sessions.

    Nice "top" screenshot on the right screen. That desk is too organized! I wish my desk looked this neat.
