Why should I use this framework?

How popular is it?
Real companies building real applications use this framework. Most people who evaluate this framework choose to use it.

There is another popular framework with a download of several megabytes(!!), while yours is only about 100K (the DLL itself is less than 50K). What gives?
With this framework you get a framework. Out of the box you'll be able to accomplish 99% of your logging tasks. Yet it isn't bloated with unnecessary complexities. For the 1% of other logging tasks you might have, you can easily extend it.

Is there a book for your framework?
No. That's a good thing. If this framework required a book, one would have to question what they were getting themselves into. It's just a logging framework, after all! It's well-commented, and there's an XML file for help within the Visual Studio IDE.

Am I better off using a framework with a large user community? Who can help me if I have questions?
As a matter of fact, there is a large user base. But there isn't an active board setup specifically for the framework. Why? It isn't needed. But if you do have a question, I'm more than happy to field it.

What do other people say? Here are just a few.

Are there other tools that support or extend the logging framework?
