I ssh from windows all the time using putty for my client. It's a
suberb program with great terminal emulation and color support. I've
also used it with public key auth and s/key auth just fine as well.
There is also a patch for gssapi/krb5 support, but it's a little more
difficult, but I doubt even openssh on max os x has that.
For file transfers, I'd have to double check to be sure, but I believe
WinSCP was my choice client. It even fully integrates with windows
explorer so I can copy files just as easily as the already built-in ftp
support, but do it securely.
And for graphics, I find tightvnc to be a great program to access a unix
P.S. I do still prefer to be in front of a real unix system, but
accessing one isn't too much trouble from windows.

NT leads to Bluescreen.
Bluescreen leads to downtime.
Downtime leads to suffering.
NT is the path to the darkside.
Powerful Unix is.
