LXer: Are Linux Systems Ready for Daylight Saving Time?

Published at LXer:

Most computers are programmed to automatically change to daylight saving time the first Sunday in April, and only machines manufactured within the last year or so have been updated to reflect the new daylight saving time plan. Microsoft and Apple have issued automatic updates. However, users of other types of devices cannot necessarily rely on their machines to make the change on their own.

Are not most distros already updated? This seems like old news.
