One question. Why is this system running Microsoft Windows?

I have the same D525.  I've had both Linux and BSD on it.  I eventually
settled on BSD and performance is very good. Windows is a bit sluggish on
Atom.   I was using it as a file/web/NTP server. At first I was not getting
acceptable performance then found out he built-in Ethernet controller is
poor.  I installed an Intel card and then was able to get "wire speed" on a
gigabit Ethernet.  The NTP server ran flawlessly.   Night and day better
performance after upgrading the Ethernet.

In an effort ton reduce power even more I've moved to an ARM based system.
