  One advantage of having an OS and NTP client on board is that you get automatic TZ and DST offsets if you want. A Pi  also works fine with a USB WiFi dongle so no ugly CAT5 wiring required. One of the Pi s I2C buses could be used to drive a 7 seg display controller such as those from Adafruit.  
As you would have the full TCP stack you could configure it over the same wiFi . It's not Windows but doesn't need  much power so long as you don't want to drive giant LEDs.
