    Not everybody can start work an hour earlier and finish an hour earlier! Especially if you're a parent and have to take your children to school. The point of daylight saving is not to get up an hour earlier, it's to move the daylight to the evening instead of to the morning.

    Might I just add that, as long as you're using Ubuntu, you don't need to change your clock. The tzdata package already knows when you have daylight saving, and changes the clock for you.

    Your phone probably gets its time from the cellular network too, which means it will automatically change.

    Re: Daylight savings time

    When I was a kid and daylight savings first started it took my mother about an hour to explain that no, it didn't mean school now started at 10:00 and not 9:00. I just couldn't figure it.

    The clocks might say one thing, but I knew what the real time was! At 2AM the clock might go forward an hour to show 3AM, but I knew it was really 2AM. Therefore, 10AM was the real 9AM and that was that in my tiny mind! Maybe that's when my mind started twisting ...

    But no biggie. Once I realised that in six months it would go back to being the real time again, I calmed down.
