Single sign-on. Your Windows clients, in the right environment, can
have their Kerberos tickets managed to allow Kerberos tickets, not
authorized_keys, to be used very effectively and reduce typing
!@#$!@#$ passwords or manipulating SSH keys. The "development" version
of Putty also has this built right in, though it's not made it to the
production version yet.
