    Terminal - Mac OS X

    It's pretty good, and I don't have to install one.
    Too different to be awesome.

    OpenSSH client comes with the ssh program (secure shell), scp (for secure file copy), sftp (for secure FTP) can be used on Linux, Solaris, FreeBSD etc.

    I use PuTTY -- it's just something I've used since I first got involved in the industry. It has been great for me, very easy to use.

    I use Terminal.app on OSX for most of my work and when on windows I use SecureCRT as I prefer its look and feel and the tab support it provides. I also find its ssh key management tools are a bit better then what PuTTY provides.

    Only downside is it's not a free app.

    Depending on what OS I'm using:

    FreeBSD: OpenSSH client
    Mac OS X: OpenSSH client through Terminal
    iPhone: iSSH
    Windows: PuTTY

    I've used SecureCRT but find it has problems with showing things correctly, so I'm switching to Putty..

    Putty rocks for Windows. Easy to use.

    In commercial locations I usually go to Hummingbird.

    PuTTY is all I use. The serial port mode is also very useful when I'm working with networking gear and other serial-console devices.

    I always have SecureCRT open connected to all my servers, which is nice and easy because it support tabs, and I can connect to them all at once and launch top etc.

    For coding, actually fixing things, etc definitely putty.

    I prefer to use PuTTy as well. When I first started with an SSH client I used SecureCRT then after switching to PuTTy I've basically been using it ever since.
