Russia goes to winter time

After living for three years in “eternal” DST, on October 26, 2014, Russia will turn the clock 1 hour back to the standard, or winter, time.

Operating systems installed the corresponding updates. The time zone changed to UTC+3, and its title has RTZ 2 specification in parenthesis.

Windows 7 notifies: Daylight Saving Time ends on October 26, 2014 at 2:00. The clock is set to go back 1 hour at that time.

Windows 7: Daylight Saving Time ends on October 26, 2014 at 2:00. The clock is set to go back 1 hour at that time.

If you click the clock in the taskbar, you’ll see similar notification in the calendar:
Windows 7, calendar in taskbar: Daylight Saving Time ends on October 26, 2014 at 2:00. The clock is set to go back 1 hour at that time..

Check box Automatically adjust clock for Daylight Saving Time returned to Time Zone Settings dialog:
Windows 7: "Automatically adjust clock for Daylight Saving Time" check box for "(UTC+03:00) Moscow, St. Petersburg, Volgograd (RTZ 2)" time zone.

Windows 8 also has time zone update:
Windows 8: Daylight Saving Time ends on October 26, 2014 at 2:00. The clock is set to go back 1 hour at that time.

Since Microsoft stopped supporting Windows XP in April 2014, there will be no time zone update for this operating system.

Windows 10 does not have time zone updates for Russia at this time.
