But how much of that is still valid? 
With the latest 2.x of syslog-ng, is it still asynchronous? Based my 
experiences and others, I don't think it's a problem anymore.
The argument about chroot is bogus as you need patches for sysklogd to do 
that. It's not 'base functionality' that we're losing.

I guess the comment about simplicity is still valid. But hell, syslog-ng is at 
least actively developed :)

I don't pirate MS software. It wouldn't be worth the price..
