Late as a Cygwin user…

… but hey, better late than never!

So I was just complaining about how PuTTY doesn’t seem to handle SSH keys (e.g. AWS, Azure) very well, and then I came to (belated) realization that because rsync can be used in Windows via Cygwin, so can ssh.

Now I don’t waste time in a UI managing PuTTY profiles, generating PPKs, or fidding with regedit.exe to clean up cached host fingerprints.

Try Cygwin, today.
