I do a lot of distro testing, and this really bugs me.  Fedora
defaults to the system clock being set to UTC instead of local time,
and resets the hardware clock to what it thinks is the correct time.
The problem is when you reboot into another distro that assumes the
system is on localtime and freaks out a bit since the file system has
time stamps in the future.  I know there are probably very good
reasons for Fedora defaulting to the system clock being UTC, and I
also know that I have the option to uncheck the box during install,
but I would really like to see the default changed.
