Hello,
I'm currently using Putty and my question is whether there is a better tool to use.

Might you know about NX NoMachine (Remote Desktop).  Maybe these two do not compare.

What do you use it for? I use putty to remote terminal into FreeBSD and the first thing I do is run tmux. This lets me attach to a session that stays open when I close putty.

There is Kitty, a PuTTY fork with additional features:

http://kitty.9bis.net/

and there is Moba Xterm, which might be closer to what you desire.

http://mobaxterm.mobatek.net/

It's a terminal emulator, but comes with a builtin Xserver, so you can start your graphical desktop once you're connected to your host - and there is a remote desktop (RDP) client.

So the session manager's network utilities include: SSH, RDP, VNC, Telnet, Rlogin, FTP, SFTP and XDMCP.

There are lots of plugins available:

http://mobaxterm.mobatek.net/plugins.html

Additionally, there is a graphical file browser.

You'll get Unix tools to run in a CMD window, like ls, grep, find etc, and also vi/vim or nedit.

And - no installation required at all, it even runs from an USB device.

By the way - it's free.
