I agree, I run ntp on every single computer I own, but I was talking in
general. But for a server, I'd expect them to use UTC anyways. The
only advantage I see to local time is support for other oses or reading
the time in the bios, neither of which will probably be a big deal on a
server. And for desktop users, they may not bother running ntp or even
be on a network.
I sense much NT in you.
NT leads to Bluescreen.
Bluescreen leads to downtime.
Downtime leads to suffering.
NT is the path to the darkside.
Powerful Unix is.
