Just in case it wasn't clear from the responses that have already been 
given, the problem is that Linux and Windows make different assumptions 
about the hardware clock. By default, Linux treats the hardware clock as 
being in UTC, while Windows treats it as local time.

In my opinion, the most elegant solution would be to configure Windows 
to use a UTC hardware clock. If that is not possible and it were my 
machine, i'd look into setting both Linux and Windows to query an NTP 
server on boot and set their clock that way.
