As you are aware, legislation has been enacted to modify daylight savings time. Because of this “Energy Policy Act”, daylight saving time is extended by four weeks starting in 2007. Daylight saving time starts at 02:00 A.M. on March 11, 2007 and ends at 02:00 A.M. on November 4, 2007. On March 11, 2007, clocks will move forward one hour from 01:59 A.M. to 03:00 A.M. On November 4, 2007, clocks will move back one hour from 01:59 A.M. to 01:00 A.M.
With that said, we will need a solution or positional statement as to how we are going to direct our customers and partners in enablement of these changes. More critically – especially with our devices used in medical applications for patient pharma dosing and delivery – will be how these changes are implemented in our devices already deployed (or about to be deployed) in these environments. As you can imagine, this could a substantial problem as these devices are relied upon for time-critical applications in scheduled delivery of meds to patients.
According to a snippet on Microsoft's site (especially that last sentence):
"Important The following changes modify the registry and could make a Windows Mobile-based device unstable if these changes are applied incorrectly. End-users should check whether this update is available from the device manufacturer."

If anyone has any ideas as to how we can address this situation, please share.
