Yes. Windows and UTC don't play nice.

I don't use the Windows side of my dual-boot system that often, so I've had success with the following strategy:


(1) Set the Linux side to use UTC hardware clock.
(2) Set the Windows side to use GMT as the time zone.
(3) Set the Windows clock manager to ignore summer time (must be done for *each* windows user).
(4) Look at wristwatch to get local time when in Windows.
