Promising but not good enough  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
Well the log software has some good features, runs nicely under linux (I use Fedora) without any problems. Easy to instal. Has user friendly screen shots. Lots of good things.
The major draw back is that it is not good for fast intuitive qso entering. One has to use either a mouse or tab-key to go to ADD button to enter the QSO. Under pile-up I do not have time to play with the mouse. Some other things that I do not like is the lack of possibility for managing the fields more freely and lack of automatically update of some other fields like time. Currently one has to press the button to enter the time.
But since the code is open one can add some extra deatures. Good luck

Easy to use, more features than before  Time owned: more than 12 months
I use xlog 0.9.1 on my home PC and my Toshiba Libretto, both of which are running Fedora Core, the latest free version of RedHat Linux. I am very well pleased. The program is intuitive, easy to use, can handle multiple logs, edits, merges, and will export in several formats including Cabrillo for contests.

xlog also ties into hamlib for automated gathering of information (i.e.: operating frequency, mode) for a wide variety of ham rigs with computer interfaces. The software is very configurable for personal tastes as well.

I am completely pleased with this software and you certainly can't beat the price since it's free. It's also Open Source, meaning a ham with programming skills can modify it as needed.

I've used previous versions of xlog for the last year and a half or so. It just keeps getting better.

Great logger  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
Just started using this since I just put up a 40 dipole. Not a lot of features, but I don't need a swiss army knife only a log book. Highly recommend for the Linux users.
