Daylight Saving Time in 2007

Will Windows (2000 and XP) correctly handle the special 2007 dates for
Daylight Saving Time?

On August 8, 2005, President George W. Bush signed the Energy Policy Act
of 2005. This Act changed the time change dates for Daylight Saving
Time in the U.S. Beginning in 2007, DST will begin on the second Sunday
of March and end the first Sunday of November. The Secretary of Energy
will report the impact of this change to Congress. Congress retains the
right to revert the Daylight Saving Time back to the 2005 time schedule
once the Department of Energy study is complete.

I'm sure that it will cope with it, but then again, I wouldn't be surprised
if there's an update for it.

I assume it will. There was an automatic update (via Microsoft
Updates) for the change in Daylight Saving for the Commonwealth Games
in Australia this year, so I cannot believe that the US would not be
treated in a similar fashion.

You worry about the most trivial of things - why not wait and see? If
you really start to get panic attacks about it, turn it to manual (best
way anyway).

These changes happen all the time, and not just in the USA. Updates
become available from Microsoft (now through Windows Update). Or you can
manually edit your timezones using Microsoft's Timezone Editor tool
(tzedit).

Thanks Mike (and others).

Can anyone provide links where to download TZEdit for Windows 2000 Pro
and for Windows XP Pro (I have two computers running different OS.)

Thanks in advance,

Microsoft has problems with DST in Isreal and Palestine, but only
because Palestine has an actual law that says tha no matter which day
you switch the clocks, it must not be on the same day as Isreal!
Apparently no one has yet to get the program to account for
blood-feuds. ;)
