Microsoft Enterprise Library Logging Vs Log4NET

I have doing some research about the available logging services out there and found this interesting article. I have used both logging services MS and Log4NET and great thing about both is that configuration is simple and straigth forward. The problem that I had most of the time with Microsoft Enterprise Library Logging Block is that I had to create a wrapper on top so that I can log messages for different categories and handle them little bit different + formatting without having to do a lot of configuration via the configuration files.

Here is the article I am referring.
Here is part two:

Whats interesting are his stats.
