     http://www.wrtc2006.com/WRTC_radioSW.htm lists the logging software used
by each station in WRTC 2006.  Only six different logging programs were 
used by the 46 teams.  The following breaks down the usage overall
and by the continental area of the team captain:

         Overall  AF  AS  EU  NA  OC  SA
         -------  --  --  --  --  --  --
WriteLog:  14          1   6   4   1   2
WinTest:   12             12
N1MM:       9      1       5   1       2
CT-Win:     8                  8
TR Log:     2              2
Zlog4Win:   1          1 


* WinTest was used exclusively by teams from Europe, and it was the most 
  popular logging program amongst the European teams.  Any ideas why it's not 
  more popular outside Europe? 

* TR Log is the only DOS-based logger still being used by top competitors, 
  with CT, NA, and SD all absent from the competition this time around.

* Over 80% of the WRTC teams still use commercial logging software rather than 
  freeware.  On the other hand, freeware is now the choice of 20% of the teams
  at WRTC.
