Alternative to Putty?
I have used Putty for some time now on Windows to manage my boxes remotely, but I'm fed up. I can't copy/paste, I don't have history or commands. What else do you suggest for Windows?
Putty can copy/paste just fine.
I thought you could log history but maybe not.
SecureCRT is probably the best client around but it is not free

How do you copy/paste in Putty? (I tried Ctrl-C/Ctrl-V, I also tried copying right-clicking)...
Ctrl+Insert -- Copy
Shift+Insert -- Paste
These key combos should work with other window applications as well.
Copy and paste is described in the online documentation for putty. Truly, you'll save yourself some grief if you just read it rather than going to a forum to complain about PuTTY not having features it already has!
In you are using the bash shell (default on most linux distros) you can use CTRL+R to search though your history.
try middle-clicking and right-clicking on the PuTTY screen.
Copying and pasting is a simple matter of highlighting text in Putty then right clicking or Shift+Insert.
Yeah, that's how I've always done it. I didn't even know about this Shift+Insert or Ctrl+Insert, I just highlight it and it copies automatically and then I right-click to paste something

Ctrl-C doesn't "copy" in putty, it's the act of highlighting that copies the text ... just leave out the Ctrl-C next time and you won't need to end what you were doing!

I cant think of any alternative to putty. otherwise it have to be a Linux machine
I use SecureCRT, it's like the Firefox of SSH clients (tabbed 'shelling', etc).
