Microsoft The extension of daylight-saving time by a month in the United States is causing enormous grief for some IT administrators running Microsoft software, as many of the software programs running on their users' systems need to be individually patched to reflect the change. This year, daylight-saving time starts today - three weeks earlier than usual - and ends a week later than usual on Nov. 4.

In Brazil, DST changes every year

...and we never had any support for our dynamic DST behavior.

This year, 2 or 3 weeks before DST was over (...), Microsoft kindly released patches over WUS to set DST for Brazil. Before that, we have to deal with a huge ammount of scripts and GPO's that change the computer's Registry.

Every year this change causes a huge the mess to Outlook Scheduling and other Database products, too.
