Why not just stick with chrony. But I thought we were discussing Windows
systems, on which chrony does not run. And if someone has rewritten
chrony to run on windows, there is no point in handing over to ntp. As I
said chrony is about 2 times better ( lower standard deviation) than
ntp. Why would you want to hand over control to a worse program?
