Keeps it simple  Time owned: more than 12 months
I'm using this now for more than 3 years on Linux. Written by DJ1YFK in Perl it should run on most other UNIXes as well. If you don't need myriads of windows and can live with everything in a single console window YFKLog is worth a look. Though looking simple at a first glance it has some features.

Such as:
- LOTW support (export and import)
- communicates with TRX using hamlib
- supports the most important awards (DXCC, WPX, WAZ, IOTA etc.)
- ADIF import/export of course
- It can even generate PDFs for QSL-label printing

What I really like is that it stores QSOs in a database (either SQLite or MySQL). I'm using SQLite. If you are familiar with SQL you can easily extract all sorts of information and statistics from that database.

What you don't get is any sort of DX-Cluster support.

Anyway it runs rock solid and I haven't discovered any bugs yet.
