I got that Fedora16 and OpenSUSE present wrong system time because they
are the only systems I run that have WRONG UTC.
For example: My correct system time is 21:20:04 and when I do on
Fedora(OpenSUSE) :
hwclock ; date ; date --utc I got

8:20:04 PM WEST
20:20:04 WEST 2012
19:20:04 UTC 2012

Then UTC is 2 hours before my right daylight savings time AND IT SHOULD
On Ubuntu,Debian which present right system hour with daylight savings
20:20:04 UTC 2012(which is correct with the real world).

The numbers look right for the WEST time zone (western Europe savings
time), which is defined as "+0100".

"hwclock" always reports in local time, regardless if your hardware
clock is set to UTC or not (read the man page if you don't believe me).
You need to look at /etc/sysconfig/clock to see how your hardware clock
is set. If "UTC" is "true", then your hardware clock is using UTC.
My hardware clock is set to UTC. But in /etc/sysconfig/clock
all I find is a line defining the Local time zone "America/Chicago".
Nothing about UTC.

I believe the default hardware clock setting (e.g if "UTC=" is not
specified) is UTC as well. The /etc/adjtime file will tell you what
it really is set to. If you see UTC in there, then your hardware clock
is UTC.

This was all a hell of a lot easier when you could look at the startup
scripts instead of having this silly systemd-timedated binary. I'm not
a fan of this whole systemd crap. I like transparency and in lieu of
source code, how about a man page?

Have to agree, complexity for no benefit. So what if the boot time is a few seconds faster, is that really important other than to marketing guys?
