Comment Re:Use UTC, RealTimeIsUniversal=1 (Score 1) 299 299

Those are some lazy excuses, not real reasons. For example, OSX runs UTC on the CMOS clock, but users never notice, and old applications didn't break (too much).

The real reasons are these:
1. Microsoft would be consistently wrong rather than correct and break things.
2. GetSystemTime() returns UTC. In the past, it didn't know about UTC. And many programmers who used it didn't either. See 1.
