Putty in my hand…

The most useful and used piece of open source software I’ve ever come across is the SSH client putty. It’s small and perfectly formed. It runs from a single executable meaning that you don’t have to be an administrator who can run setup programs that access the registry. I’ve used it on restricted M machines in offices and Internet cafes. It’s simply the best.

But it’s gotton better! A Czech developer called aleq has taken the putty source code and ported it to Pocket PC 2003, creating PocketPutty. It works like a dream and has a lot of promise. Keep up the good work aleq! I’m looking forward to being able to turn my handheld on its side to work in landscape mode. Then all I need is a battery powered bluetooth Happy Hacker keyboard!
