Forget DST

Working in technology sometimes I've had the great fun of working with time and manipulating it for various time zones. After thinking through this one time I wondered why we can't just go to UTC for all our time?


  1. One time everywhere in the world
  2. No changing clocks each spring and fall for Daylight Saving Time, we'd just get up a little earlier or go to bed later.
  3. Programmers wouldn't have to write as much complex time conversion code.


  1. People would have to figure out the new time.
  2. Programmers wouldn't have anything to do.
  3. Countries would need to be convinced it would be worth the switch.
