I just noticed that 11.2 uses rsyslog instead of syslog-ng that was
used previously. What is the advantage?

I wouldn't mind knowing the reasons for this change - it doesn't seem to
be something that was discussed a lot, yet it is quite significant.

You're free to stay with syslog-ng, but for new users rsyslog is the better
- debian and fedora use rsyslog too, users coming from there will know the
config format
- rsyslog doesn't require wild hacks to improve boot time - it just works

Most of the other reasons are already listed in the thread.
