I've never been one to log using a computer. But
lately I've been dabbling with contesting, and have
come to the realization that computerized logging is
the way to go.

That being said, let me pose a question to the experts.
Which logging software is the best to use?
Or does it matter as long as it can output files in
Cabrillo format?

Thanks and 73

You probably should go to contesting.com to ask this, but my personal fave of all the programs is WriteLog for Windows.  Easy to set up, easy to use, wonderful GUI, powerful program, updated prior to nearly every contest, with updates downloadable from the web.

Unless you're just fooling around looking for new DXCC entities or something, and never intend to actually enter the contest, contesting without a good logging/duping/spotting program is virtually impossible, and certainly renders the world's best operator, at the world's best station, non-competitive.

I prefer Log-EQF because of the ease of operation and tremendous support from the author of the software.  N3EQF is great help if you need it.  I use the original DOS version in lieu of the newer
Windows version.  It has Cabrillo format and is good to use for chats rather than contesting too.

Everyone has different tastes, I just like this one.

I use N1MM logger. It's a fantastic log for all famous contest like CQ or ARRL and others..
With this log, it's possible to convert your files in Cabrillo.
And more the program is a freeware. Thanks very much N1MM.
Sorry for the english.

I've used DXbase for several years as my main logging/QSLing/award scoring program and it is excellent.
I recently downloaded the freeware N1MM logger for use during the CQDX CW contest and found it to be a superb program with a very intuitive interface and loads of bells lights and whistles too. This might be worth trying before you start spending cash on a program that has more facilties than you really require.
