    Unix time, or POSIX time, is a system for describing points in time, defined as the number of seconds elapsed since midnight proleptic Coordinated Universal Time (UTC) of January 1, 1970, not counting leap seconds. It is used widely, not only in Unix-like operating systems, but also in many other computing systems and file formats. It is neither a linear representation of time nor a true representation of UTC (though it is frequently mistaken for both), as it cannot represent standard UTC leap seconds (e.g. December 31, 1998 23:59:60), although otherwise the times it represents are UTC. – Yi Jiang Oct 31 '10 at 8:30
