Common Log File System and System.IO.Log

I was poking around the MSDN documentation looking for some Trace information and I stumbled upon the System.IO.Log namespace. I haven't had a chance to work with it yet (and at this point I'm not sure how usable it would be for general application development as it's only available on Vista and Windows Server 2003 R2) but it looks intriguing.

DevX.Com has a nice introduction to it here.

I'm not sure that this will displace my favourite logging tool but competition is never a bad thing (although I have strong feelings about fragmentation, especially in the open source world, just for the sake of "having my own project" but that's content for a different blog post).

Memory is a fascinating trickster. Words and images have enormous power and can easily displace actual experience over the years. See the link below for more info.
