Not all of them, no-- but most of them, especially anything which is  
running a database or doing logfile processes, I want to have them  
working in GMT.  Something like a mail server or fileserver, it's  
perhaps better to keep things in the local timezone to avoid  
confusing users with timestamps that are not as expected...
