That simply implies that the timezone and/or the UTC vs Local setting aren't configured correctly. They'll need to be set to match whatever other OS you use, Windows prefers to store the local time in the BIOS while *nix-like OSes tend to store UTC in the BIOS clock and offset from that in software based on the configured timezone.

Ok, when Haiku is run as live cd, has default timezone set. But when is installed on HDD i set the proper time zone/local setting. I suggest (for those that don't know this setting and want to evaluate Haiku just as live cd) to use a sort of geolocalization based on IP of the active connection to set the correct timezone.
