I guess platform is vague.  Maybe I should have said language agnostic.  It would be nice to
have a single logging architecture/design run on C/C++, .NET, Java, etc.  Or at least it seems
like a nice feature to me.  I would assume there are many enterprises out there that have
applications running on different OS's and languages.  If I'm trying to pick a logging framework
to use and I find a popular one which is capable and runs similarly across the OS's and languages
then that's a big plus in my mind.

Just to make things clear, Log4j is a logging framework for the JVM
platform, and it is agnostic to the underlying OS. It it well tested on (at
least) both Linux and Windows.
