Sorry, hijo, I don't understand you - why would aligning the clocks with the rest of Europe be a major thing when downloading software?

GMT or UTC will always be there, it's used by all the worlds military, aviation and all types of communication.

The world is divided up into into 25 zones, Zulu time being GMT west Alpha is to the east of the GMT line.

I meant to add the report in your link is factually wrong.

Gmt is here to stay

You can play about with time IE move it forwards or backwards, Time as we know it is a man made measurement

but i think moving the meridian line might posse a bit of a problem

as for downloading software it doesn't really matter what the time is i download from servers all over the world with differing time zones so i wouldn't worry to much

I fail to see the point.

Ditto to that.

It certainly has nothing whatsoever to do with downloading software.

Policticians have live in fantasy land since they first started, they still do. It's a vital qualification of being a politician!

The meridian 0 will always be meridian 0 and so will GMT.
