Someone on my team asked me to approve the PURCHASE of a secureCRT license. I literally had a good laugh after asking the requester why we are paying money for a terminal emulator. His response is that secureCRT will drive efficiencies when having multiple terminals open.
I asked this requester if they had heard of Linux and realized it’s available for free. Will support countless terminal windows across multiple tty’s or even desktops, if that’s their thing.
That wasn’t good enough so I asked them if they heard of putty and it’s ability to support multiple profiles.
I ended up approving the ONE HUNDRED TWENTY NINE USD purchase so someone can feel the perceived comfort of their preferred emulator.
Thought there may be some of you who can appreciate that conversation, as much as I did...
I’ll go back in my hole now.
