Are there any good log viewers on Windows roughly equivalent to Linux's log viewer or OS X's Console?

I need to be able to tail multiple logs, with search & filtering.

I've seen BareTail as mentioned in the "Log viewer on Windows" question, but I am looking for other candidates.

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

This question is not a duplicate. I am not looking for just any log viewer, I'm looking for equivalents to other software on OSX and Linux. – Colin Harrington Aug 28 '10 at 21:49
Thanks for the screenshots. – Colin Harrington Mar 29 '12 at 4:17
So The answer was that there isn't an equivalent that I found. – Colin Harrington Mar 29 '12 at 4:18
We ended up using splunk anyway to aggregate all that data. – Colin Harrington Mar 29 '12 at 4:18

Not sure if it will do exactly what you want but look at PsLogList from sysinternals.

LogViewerPro looks promising. If you were only interested in the Windows event logs, I would suggest MyEventViewer. But you're not, so I won't.
