Maybe Mark can make FlexLogger (or whatever it will eventually be called) crosss-platform :-)
My humble opinion!
(for now using iMac 27" with Parallels Desktop, W10 family, SmartSDR and MacLoggerDX).
The management of LoTW and others online logs is super easy.
I have not tested it under these yet but the program really only needs a network connection to function. Everything else is pretty much rolled in.

I’ve used most of the logging packages mentioned here already, but my favorite for use with the 6400 is the DXLabs suite. It has tons of features along with e-QSL / LOTW submission. It will also put DX spots on the pan adapter and does a good job of interfacing with the flex radio in general. I would say that it does pretty much everything you could expect a logging package to do. This is a highly configurable suite of programs. if you can think of it, you can probably do it. On the flip side, the interface is not what I would consider modern and there is a good learning curve, but its worth the effort. Is DXLabs the perfect logger? No it’s not. The perfect logging program doesn’t exist, but for free it’s certainly worth a try to see if it works out for you.
For field day logging, my vote goes to N3FJP. It’s quick to setup, easy to use and works on just about any old windows computer that you have lying around.
Both DXLabs and N3FJP are updated on a regular basis by their authors.

For DXers, describing DXLab as providing excellent logging would
be like describing a Corvette as providing excellent steering. Yes, excellent logging is essential, and DXLab automates the procedures
involved in logging QSOs, confirming QSOs, and managing award credit - enabling you to spend
more time DXing. But for the DXer, excellent logging is far from sufficient.
What distinguishes DXLab from all other applications that claim to support DXing is the database of currently-active stations it maintains in real time, and its ability to immediately recognize whether an active station is “needed” for one or more of the awards that you are pursuing: DXCC, IOTA, Leaderboard, Marathon, VUCC, WAS, WAZ and WPX – taking into account the bands and modes on which you are pursuing each award.
The database of active stations is continuously populated from up to 7 sources: DX Clusters, DX Summit, the Reverse Beacon Network, CW Skimmer, and WSJT-X. Multiple independently filterable views of active DX stations are provided – tabular with a row for each active station, on a world map, in a vertical bandspread, and on a SmartSDR panadapter – all color coded to highlight stations with whom a QSO would advance your progress towards the awards you are pursuing, and to indicate participation in LoTW and eQSL.
DXLab also includes both propagation prediction and propagation monitoring, identifying band openings between your QTH and needed stations, and characterizing each active station by the probability that you can work it via the short path or long path.
Using your Flex for DXing? Try DXLab; it's entirely free.
Using WSJT-X? DXLab interoperates with it directly, color-coding decoded callsigns to indicate both "award need" and participation in LoTW and eQSL:
