[CQ-Contest] Win-Test VS DXLog

wintest supports far less contests than dxlog. It is very steady in 
comparison with any other software especially when you have a network 
and this makes it preferable for dxpeditions.

Dxlog supports the most contests of all (officially).

Both programs support some scripts by users. This feature usually is 
used by the first scorers.

Both have almost the same UI.

Dxlog is continuously developed while wintest not.

Dxlog used to have many bugs in past. After Chris (the original 
developer) passed away, K1LZ got it and made it free. Paul K1XM and 
Bjorn SM7IUN are the developers now. They have solved almost every bug. 
It is very steady now, I would say without any problem. We use it in a 
4-5 computers' network in my club with really zero problems and I use it 
also in my home station without any problem the last 2-3 years.

I can not find any reason to prefer wintest vs dxlog.
