Don't worry, there will be a patch put into Windows to accommodate this, just like the 1900 bug in Excel.

@BR -

Yes, I understand the patch has already been tested and works like a champ, except on March 29, April 29...

I wonder how bad their handling of the Hebrew/Jewish calendar is. it's a lunar calendar with a leap month. In leap years the entire month of Adar is repeated :) Oh, and yeah, there is FOSS software for the Jewish calendar (libhdate, ghcal, hcal, etc...) that works brilliantly and has done for years.
