Thanks for that pointer, Gary.  I do wish they said just what the 
setup.exe is going to install - with some application software I have no 
alternative except clicking on setup.exe, but with NTP I do feel the need 
to know more about what elements of my system are going to be altered as I 
already have a well-tuned NTP setup.

Dave Hart has done a lot of work with NTP, including the Windows port, and 
his most recent work has resulted in very significant performance 
improvements for NTP 4.2.7p241 and later.  These won't yet be in their 
4.2.7p32.  I also wonder whether their version includes support for the 
same reference clocks, and the Kernel-mode serial PPS driver which Dave 
has built.

Perhaps "Tomasz Widomski" and/or "p.marszalek" should be invited to join 
either this list or NTP Hackers?

Cheers,
David
