Comments about KiTTY as a Alternative to PuTTY
It's a more actively developed fork.2
It's pretty much stock Putty, but upgraded to modern standards.1
Fork of putty. But more recently updated and fresher.3
The same functionality than PuTTY but prettier, and seems faster for me too-2

Comments about OpenSSH as a Alternative to PuTTY
Up to date. One of the most trustworthy dev teams on the intenet.10
Totally standardized on all platforms (ok, not Windows, but catching up there).6
Not a terminal emulator like PuTTY is.1
It is a SSL-Protocol-Implementation not a Terminal Emulator0

Tabby Terminal Features
Comments about Tabby Terminal as a Alternative to PuTTY
I think Tabby is overall easier and more smoother to work with. Specially since you get tabs, themes etc. If you just want to ssh into this than that I don't know why you wouldn't switch to tabby.0

Comments about MobaXterm as a Alternative to PuTTY
Arguably the best remote access program out there. Great compact interface, most features I've ever seen, works amazingly fast out of the box. The 10 session limit is what makes this Freemium, so if that is not a big deal for you, this is the software for you.0
It's never let me down and is feature rich.0
It's okay, but sessions are constantly disconnected after like a few minutes later. it also has some random cartoons all over the screen so annoying. not recommended.-4
mRemoteNG is a fork of mRemote , an open source, tabbed, multi-protocol, remote connections manager.
Comments about mRemoteNG as a Alternative to PuTTY
If multiwindow (think 10+ ssh sessions at a time) is your thing this is the best alternative by far -- as a Linux admin and typically on 25+ servers at a crack this free app managed all servers no sweat.0
Free with premium features0
Ready to go. Termux works directly with no rooting or setup required. At first start a minimal base system is installed automatically - you decide what to do next.
- - Termux is the most popular Android & Android Tablet alternative to PuTTY.
PowerShell (including Windows PowerShell and PowerShell Core) is a task automation and configuration management framework from Microsoft, consisting of a command-line shell and associated scripting language built on the .NET Framework.
Comments about PowerShell as a Alternative to PuTTY
PuTTY is for remote terminal access, via SSH, Telnet, serial, etc.. Powershell is a shell for scripting not SSH or Telent access.11
Since recently Microsoft has integrates OpenSSH in Windows 10 natively, so PowerShell (and Windows terminal) may now connect to SSH hosts from the command line, as you would do from LINUX or OS/X. PuTTY however has many more functions.3
Local command shell. Putty is first and foremost a remote connection too.13
Not the same kind of product.0
