For those of you interested in actual data you can find my study of logging
programs used during the ARRL 10 Meter contest at:
http://www.arrl.org/contest-results-articles in the Full article on the 2014
ARRL 10 Meter contest. But to echo what others have said:
* Win-Test -- relatively few users, but with big logs. On average the
biggest of any logging program by a wide margin.
* N1MM Family -- many users, with average size logs. Of course with 47% of
the logs submitted from N1MM & N1MM+ it is a big driver of the average.
* N3FJP -- a quarter of the users as N1MM family, twice that of Win-Test,
but with small logs.
As a trend Win-Test and Writelog are decreasing in usage while N1MM is
increasing. Though the shifts are small. Once someone learns a logger they
tend to stick with it.
