I've messed around with Minicom, but it's not the most intuitive program
to use and has been a bit frustrating. Is there anything out there
that's closer to programs like Putty, Tera-Term, etc. for Windows?

I'm going through a USB-to-Serial adapter so I have to be able to tell
it to talk down /dev/ttyUSB0.
