UPDATE: Windows Vista does not include Telnet...or does it?

Have you ever used Telnet?  It's a small console based application that allows you to connect to remote machines.  Telnet was included in Windows from at least Windows 95 (could have been in 3.1?).  On my Windows Vista Build 5365 installation, telnet.exe is no where to be found.  I have filed a bug (Connect users only!) about this, let's hope it's not by design.Edit: PuTTY is a good replacement.Edit2: There is a way to install it - Control Panel -> Programs -> Turn on off windows feature -> check telnet client
