If you don't use Windows that much, you could do what I do:
- Set your hwclock to UTC.
- Set Linux to use a UTC hwclock and your local timezone.
- Set your Windows timezone to UTC.
- Set all Windows users' clocks to not change for DST.
In Windows, your clock will always show UTC, but everything else will work
