    Actually they aren't, and I don't. I find the standalone gvim much better integrated with windows as I can just right click and "edit with vim", and putty also does serial ports which is handy on those rare occasions you need it.

    Plus eclipse or springsource tool suite as I am (mostly) doing Java these days.

    MinGW cross compiler for Linux build environment | MinGW

    PuTTY gets mentioned a lot and I may have to work with unix boxes in the future so it's worth a look
    The Putty suite also contains an sftp client. With a little work, you can set up shared keys and a few windows shortcuts to give yourself automatic access.

    One tool I just love is SQL Effects Clarity (may now be called SQL Accord) which is totally free in the CE edition:

    SQL Effects Software

    Allows for easy and quick database comparison (structure, functions, stored procs, views etc) which I find invaluable when working with databases from different release versions or test environments, or for checking database update scripts are working as expected.

    Just like putty but allows you to make the windows transparent which I find very useful so that I can see what's going on in the background as I fiddle about in a terminal. Downloading Zog to give it a go now
    ZOC does everything, sometimes a little hidden in the menu's but it's there. Stores password if you want, does keepalives, even let;s you type one command in many windows, ideal for cluster-type deployments.

    Does transparency, doesn't do proper full-screen, only thing I've found, not an issue for me but the puttyheads at work disrespect ZOC cos of it...

    (Which can be bad when you forget the client is using standard and you developed a solution which needs enterprise features)
    hehe, how bizarre I had just googled that and was gonna post 'trust amazon!'

    this is a consideration, I do think though that my kind of dev probably isn't enterprisey (hate that word!) enough to be utilising the enterprise parts - but definitely worth baring in mind!

    cheers

    potentially somewhere, not having much luck with the search on there - you can find it in the states but they wont let you download to the UK
