I think that's a Microsoft "feature". I think I've seen comments
about some other not very common OS doing it that way too.
All of the systems I work with run the HW clock in UTC. I think
there are options to run it in local time if you want to dual boot
a MS OS, but I've never paid attention to that.
The suespammers.org mail server is located in California. So are all my

These are my opinions, not necessarily my employer's. I hate spam.
