https://en.opensuse.org/SDB:Configuring_the_clock is one place that explains
how Vista SP2 and newer Windows versions can use a registry "hack" that
enables use of UTC. AFAIK, DOS, XP & older Windows versions, and OS2/eCS are
all hard core local only. I'm frequently frustrated by the lasting
inexplicable effect of the one hour DST changes on files transferred between
Linux and eCS. I can reduce the effect by umounting eCS shares in Linux and
shutting down eCS right before the clock change, but it only helps, is not a
full cure those hours gained or lost copying or moving files across the network.
