I don't know.  Certainly procmon is lightyears ahead of strace in
terms of usability, plus isn't limited to a single process.  A google
found that KDE will be providing a GUI app named "inspektor" but I
couldn't find very much on it.  What is your preferred utility for
filling that niche (logging I/O calls)?

Those particular apps are useful to the point that every competent
Windows sysadmin knows of them.
