Oh yeah, TeraTerm rocks.

The full version of HyperTerm was actually pretty decent.  However, *by
Microsoft's specific request*, the version shipped with Windows was
*intentionally* crippled.  I never managed to get a good explanation as
to why anyone at Microsoft thought this was a good idea.  Maybe it was
just one of those reflexive things.

 It's not the years, it's the mileage.
