And MY point is... just as @beerForo pointed out.. in some locales twice a year you have to remember to change your settings... how is that any different than changing from 0500 Central time to 0500 GMT. You have to remember to change EITHER ONE when going from daylight savings time to standard time.It would by a simple setting that makes an admin's job a little easier. If you wouldn't use it that's fine, but many would for its' convenience.
I think the point is... it hurts the brains of some to have to convert from GMT/UTC to their local time zone.. it's not really THAT hard to remember. Here in Texas, CST is -6 behind DST is -5 behind. Simple mathematics that most learned in first grade of school. Hardest thing, as I said, is remembering what time zone you are in and whether DST/CST.
I guess I'm lucky that most of my users are intelligent enough to figure out UTC/GMT versus their local time zone since they are involved in astronomy....
