Windows daylight savings question
Posted on 2011-10-27
We're here on the east coast of the US. Daylight savings times ends Novemeber 6, so technically we're in EDT (daylight time) -400 from GMT.
All of our windows machines have the automatically update daylight savings box checked, and show that the clock will roll back 1 hr on Nov 6. So far, that's all correct.
However, for the timezone, it's showing Eastern Standard Time -500 even though we're currently at -400.
Is this just a windows thing where it says -500 but adds in the hour for daylight savings, or does the system really think that we're at -500?
