The obvious solution wasn't to remove the feature entirely, but to make all borders user-configurable and not defined at all by default.
which idea is nearly as amusing as the original post.

FWIW, the map is gone in Vista.
If the US extends daylight savings time, how will that information get distributed to the millions of copies of Windows? Via auto-update?

Yeah - I think it's already been service packed.
so does that mean that in some places the time of day depends on which side of the local dispute you consider yourself to be on?
you could come to work an hour late, change affiliation during the day, go home an hour early ...

I think Indiana used to be like that. Parts of it may still be.

Yes, Indiana used to have three different time zones, and most of the state did not use DST. I don't recall if we all went to the same zone or not, but at least Indy uses DST now.
