Default US Daylight Saving Time

Today is the first day of US Daylight Saving Time, on the old schedule for 2006. In 2007, the US Congress has decreed in its wisdom that we will start about two weeks earlier, and end about two weeks later than this year. This is supposed to save energy, but there are doubters out there, too.

Anyway, I wonder if the operating system automatic change is going to be up to the Congressional mandate. At least the Windows 98SE tells me it make the time change and asks me to confirm it, but Windows XP Pro does it without notice. So, what is going to happen next year? I suspect we will have to put the time forward in the spring (end of winter???), and then correct for the automatic change a few weeks later.

Anybody know?
