All seriousness aside...

I don't use Windows that often, but what I do is this:

- Set the HW clock to UTC.
- Set the Windows time zone to UTC.
- Set the clock in Windows to not auto-adjust on time changes.  You have
to do this for every user!

Then the Windows time display shows UTC, and Windows leaves your HW
clock set to UTC.

- If I'm booted in Windows and I need to know the local time, I look at
my watch.
