I'm hating putty at the moment for just hanging my session. I use it to log into a linux machine and port the x display back to =20 the cygwin X server. It just hung the session on me so I just lost a =20 dozen xterms and other stuff besides. This is downright evil. It hung the X server too, or maybe the X server hung it. I'm hating =20 quantify as well since I was trying to close its window when the whole =20 thing froze and also because clicking the buttons on its crappy UI =20 doesn't work, or maybe I hate the cygwin X server for that. Still, =20 opening another session and killing the quantify process didn't save =20 me so it's not all quantify's fault. People seem to like putty because its the best ssh/terminal program =20 for windows. Well it does seem to be, but I hate it because it's still =20 crap compared to almost any ssh/terminal combination on almost any =20 other platform. The main problem with this software hate thing is that it's often not =20 trivial to know which software to hate. Although almost all software =20 seems hateful, so that's one solution I guess. Fuck it. Cheers, Martin.
