If you never liked the name of TimeZone2, you'll be pleased to know that in "Orcas" Beta 1 it was renamed to TimeZoneInfo. Having played with this a bit, I found that its members include a dependency on yet another new type: DateTimeOffset. I searched and saw that this has actually been in there for a while.

What I can't fathom is why DateTimeOffset ended up in mscorlib and TimeZoneInfo ended up in System.Core! The latter makes sense, it is a brand new type so it cannot go into existing bits; so why break that rule for the former? To be clear, I would expect both of them to reside in Core. Anyway, regardless of where they belong, go play with them ;)
