I've been wondering ever since this daylight time change was announced 
what Microsoft is going to do about it.  There are HUNDREDS of millions 
of copies of Windows all coded to automatically switch on the 
traditional dates each year. 

Is the DST date change a trivial registry patch to change a constant?

Are they going to issue a patch?  

Will they non-support any version of Windows earlier than XP?
