Daylight Saving Time - Ubuntu Passes the Test

60 seconds after 0159 on October 2nd is when New South Wales, Australia mysteriously loses an hour to Daylight Saving Time and the time becomes 0300.

I was awake to record what our computers did. My wife's Windows 7 machine showed 0300 all right. I would have been surprised if it hadn't. Microsoft needs to show some degree of competence for all that market share!

What was personally gratifying to me was that my Ubuntu Linux machines also neatly skipped the hour and showed 0300.

I'm going to bed now with a smile.
