One question. Why is this system running Microsoft Windows?

Because the OP is using the system to run Windows software.  The OS is 
chosen to meet the needs of the application.

Here's the performance of a Netbook PC here (Samsung N150 plus) also running 
an Intel Atom, and also running the same software which John runs.  It's 
synced over Wi-Fi to a local stratum-1 server, with both minpoll and maxpoll 
set to 5.


As you can see, it mostly within a millisecond, with occasional excursions 
to two milliseconds.  It's quite adequate for the software in question, 
which only needs the time to within a fraction of a second.
