I was about to write the same thing.  I'd expect the avaerance Windows
user not to care but some one on a "timeNUTS" list, you'd think would
be more demanding and be looking at microseconds (even if a 10 second
error is "good enough")

I think you can get Windows to run at the "few milliseconds" of error
range with the standard NTP distribution.

Again, not that many people need this but that is not the point if you
are on this list.
