why was this moved to the NTP details screen?

Not NTP details, but details :-) It was a conclusion to move it away
from the main screen after a discussion with our UI designer. The
reason is the amount of users, who

- don't know what it means at all
- even if they know, they stick with default and don't need to
change or simply don't care

The intention is to keep in the main workflow only stuff, which is
necessary, easy to understand and which most of the users need to

Hope that helps,

Knowing doesn't really help. Whoever put it where it used to be was
very wise. Now I have to go into details on absolutely *every*
install, and for no other reason in most cases. Whether the box is
checked by default or not is completely unpredictable on multiboot
systems, and needs to be in correct state before proceeding lest one
suffer multiple annoying fsck mount date in future messages on
successive boots, or even time-wasting forced fscks.

It should be set if there is no windows partition detected. Otherwise
unchecked. If it doesn't happen, then you should report it. So correct
behavior is quite easy to predict.
