DST patching quickstart (for those very late to the party)

1). For your Windows machines, use the tool available at www.sharpebusinesssolutions.com/dst2007. Don't forget that any MS Exchange/Outlook patching that you need to do must be timed tightly with your Windows server AND client operating system patching.
2). All versions Java are a potential problem, as are many commonly employed Microsoft products. To quickly get your head around which software in your environment might require attention, navigate to http://www.calconnect.org/ and click on Daylight Saving Time.
