I believe that was fairly recently decided, last six months sticks in my 
head. I'm probably wrong.

Since we are in Indiana we just had to convert all our servers to DST 
last summer. It was a chore because we have everything from FreeBSD 6.1 
to Solaris Sparc 10s. I am seriously considering switching all of our 
NOCs to GMT and calling it a done deal. I am not convinced that the DST 
rules will not change again and playing catch up with politicians is not 
a good use of my techs time.

I noticed Yahoo switched to GMT. Is anyone else running all their 
servers on GMT?
