Talking silly question

I was just wondering if the ride quality provided by shock absorbers in cold Winter weather can differ from the Summer months when its very hot. I am only assuming that the damping fluid/oil in the cylinder will be less fluid in the cold and make the ride harder and thinner in the heat which should make it more absorbent of the bumps. Would a changeover to the gas shockers like Monroes or Gabriel be better than OEMs? Are there any others? I heard that the gas ones are adjustable for differing types of weather conditions?
