Why is Putty preferred over the Console Access?
It seems like everyone recommends Putty, but I’m curious why I’d want to use it as opposed to the Console Access that comes built in at digital ocean. They both seem to be used for SSH.. I’m still early in the tutorials, but I hate installing new software if I don’t need it, so I’m curious what advantages and features make everyone so crazy for Putty?
