I do the vast majority of my work with ssh and xterm, only using
putty, gnome-terminal, etc. when testing terminal applications.

FWIW, I just did some testing today with the iSSH App on an iPad,
and it works reasonably well connecting to a variety of *nix

I do have clients connecting to FilePro applications using the
PowerTerm program from Ericom, mostly because they want something
that does a good SCO emulation as FilePro's support for xterm is
somewhat poor (which I'm working on now fix the termcap :-).
