    I'm thinking that "Only the government" and perhaps just maybe Microsoft

    I think maybe Microsoft too.
    Windows 10 OS was heralded by MS to use less disk space than Win 7, when in fact, it just consumes more and more with each update. I've noticed from Feb 2018 to current, my C partition backup images (compressed size) are 2GB larger.

    DST is as useful as a t*t on a bull in my opinion.. but that's just my opinion.

    My computers stay on EST, no matter what. My phones and tablet though will change.....

    @Bif , I agree with you 100%. My wallet does not feel the lesser use of energy that DST is suppose to create, it is as always.... empty.......

    Just been having a look at the shift around the world. Seems US is unique - two weeks ahead of the rest of the countries that have it. It must give a few business headaches for international companies to have to update twice!
