I'd say it is mostly a matter of personal preference. On machines that
only run linux I usually keep the system clock in UTC. One advantage of
keeping the clock in UTC is that the time is never ambiguous, which is
possible if the timezone is not UTC and observes summer time. A system
clock doesn't store the timezone/UTC offset information, so when booting
it can't tell the OS whether the switch to daylight saving time has or
has not been done.
