Uwe, I will not discuss this further with you as it's veering off-topic
here. Suffice it to say I am happy to live and let live, and take
advantage of the best features of each OS I use without feeling the need
to insult others who may have different needs.
I will say a very big THANK YOU to those who have ported NTP to the
different operating systems, and spent a lot of their own time working
round the differing challenges this provides. For my own part, I have
done quite a bit of testing, provided tools to help monitor and manage
NTP, and published my findings to help others.
