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 BE ONLY 1 HOUR. On Ubuntu,Debian which present right system hour with daylight savings the UTC is 1 HOUR BEFORE 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?
