Linux can be configured to handle the CMOS clock as local time or GMT.
But this is done in userland, which mean you can have bogus time util
the appropriate command is run (not a big deal, but needs some amenagements
in the startup script to work with xntp :)
However I've got troubles on both linux and windows machines because of this,
with daylight savings change being not applied when it should have been, or
being applied twice.
