Putty is a text-mode only SSH client. If you intend to run any GUI apps on
the remote machine you need ssh's X-port-forwarding capability. If not,
then Putty might serve your needs.
In order to have a "real" ssh on windows, you need cygwin-X. This
provides the capability to use Microsoft Windows as a client of an
Cygwin has the real ssh-client package available. You install Cygwin bash
and be sure to select Xwindows and openssh-client packages.
I have run Linux' Firefox remotely with this setup and even Linux' Gnome as
the window manager for cygwin which doesnt have a nice one.
When you login just use ssh -X remotemachine and your ssh-tunnel is made
available. Then use & for any GUI remote programs including xterm!
