  I dunno about anyone else, but I use SSH (specifically, OpenSSH, and Putty
on those occasions I need to use MS-Windows) extensively.  Telnet is
firewalled out from any network I admin, and is usually turned off
completely.  We do still have a couple customers running it internally, on
their "trusted LAN", though.
