Thanks to Congress, we spring forward on March 11 this year instead of April 1. Daylight-saving time ends later, too. The changes could wreak havoc with certain electronic devices -- maybe even something more important than your VCR. We ran this Washington Post story earlier this month with more background on the change.
Microsoft today provided an update of its daylight-saving time (DST) preparedness plans. You can find lots of details here.
If you're running Windows Vista and Office 2007, you're covered. Microsoft built the new dates into its latest releases.
For people running Windows XP SP2, Microsoft will today begin pushing out a fix for the new DST dates via Automatic Updates.
Fix information for other affected products -- and there are a lot of them -- are available from a variety of sources, depending on the product.
