Are there any log packages that do a comparable job to N1MM - VQLog etc?

There are many that are comparable job to VQLog etc, but no competent contest loggers that I know of to date. However you can install Oracle VirtualBox for free. Install your favourite Microsoft OS to run within it (in my case Windows Vista). You can install N1MM to run in windows under Oracle VirtualBox and everything is fine. Configuring your COM/USB ports can be tricky but there's plenty of help out on the Internet. My favourite Linux logging program is CQRLog.

Heres an update on Contest logging programs for Linux:

JL log.
Written in java which I know is a turn off for some but it works and has some pretty cool features. It's located at  http://www.qsl.net/w1jq/  It's a bit of a challenge to get installed but it's fairly easy to use once you get it going.  Read the HowTo located here http://www.qsl.net/w1jq/HOWTO.txt
YFKtest
A CT or SD look alike, It doesn't require any installation or setup, just download and start!
