Very tough  chassis too with very little stretch which they called "the austempered chain chassis".

 I wonder if others are using this structure as well?

This austempered info on the Windsor sawchain I learned of was in the early 1980s. I'm sure other companies are doing the same. I'm no expert on the technology, but when Sandvik from Sweden joined up with Windsor in 1986 they probably introduced alot of other alloy and tempering practices. That Sandvik is very good at right to this day.
 Sandvik broke away from Windsor in the 1990s, for what reasons I don't know. Windsor was back on their own again until the day Oregon- Blount bought them out, along with Carlton.........

??? I have never seen skip tooth in .325. What is the advantage (except for the guy that doesn't like to file)?

Ship chain can have several advantages, the extra space between cutters allows more room for chips during the cut. Having only half the cutters reduces the cutting force required. Some guys use it so thay can run a longer bar than the saw is rated for.

I've found on really soft and wet woods, it makes a huge difference in cutting speeds.

Never used the .325 skip, to hard to find locally, I stick with .375 & .404

Ed, I certainly understand the advantages of skip. It is very popular here on the west coast for good reason. However, .325 is generally limited to saws under 60cc with 20" or shorter bars.
