I should point our ntp servers at it just for giggles.

But I just meant why the heck is the default time.windows.com instead of 
time.microsoft.com?  Wouldn't that make more sense? Richard Stallman could 
own windows.com for all I know. Was it Xerox who invented the original GUI? 
It could be owned by Xerox.

I guess Microsoft doesn't think that way. Windows is Microsoft, Microsoft is 

But we digress.
