Screenshot on Linux and Windows

While fetching the currenttimezone using “TimeZoneInfo.Local” we are getting the value of “DisplayName” and “ID” as Local in Linux, while it is giving correct values in Windows implementation.

TimeZoneInfo TZI_Local = TimeZoneInfo.Local;
              string DisplayName = TZI_Local.DisplayName;
              string Id = TZI_Local.Id;
Console.WriteLine("Display Name : " + DisplayName);
              Console.WriteLine("ID : " + Id);
