Hyperterminal gone from Vista

Constructing a microcontroller cirtuit, i needed to debug over the serial port but guess what? Hyperterminal is missing! Yes, it was removed from Vista.  

You can get it from the original people that Microsoft licensed it from (Hilgraeve) at but it's more than $40. A free alternative is the venerable PuTTY which is a versitile hammer anyways.
