Our winlogd EventLog tool was originally written in 2004 using the abomination known as Managed C++. Reports from users have shown some issues on Windows Server 2008 (that thing is still around?!?). Managed C++ was from .NET 1.0, migrating MC++ to what is reasonable in .NET 3.x seems like a lot of heavy lifting. And requires us to write really ugly code for C++/CLI.
And so, winlogd will will now be re-written in .NET 3.5 C#. Hopefully this will help it run a little better on the newer Windows platforms.
