Windows 98 and the upcoming daylight savings time change

    shouldn’t

be using Windows 98 anymore, it’s unsupported (i.e. no security updates.) However the reality is that there are quite a few Win 98 installs out there perking away.

Essentially in the US daylight savings time will begin …” 2:00 A.M. on the second Sunday in March” and end “2:00 A.M. on the first Sunday in November”.
