ssh to remote unix from Windows

what's the typical way to do ssh login to a remote unix on Windows Vista?

in unixes, typically one just launch a terminal app, then type ssh xyz@example.com. Typically i use a text terminal to login to remote computers to do sys admin.

I'm aware that on Windows there's a terminal app PuTTY, which is a third party software. But i wanted to know typical Window people's ways for this. e.g. or people at Microsoft, when they need to login to a remote unix based machine, what do they use/do?

as far as i know, cmd.exe or powershell doesn't include a ssh command line utility.

(am a long time unix admin (solaris, OSX). Recently switched to Windows as personal machine at least. I have cygwin and all installed, but wanted to pick up Window's practices and tech)

Thanks.
