EXPLANATION

Unix time counts the number of seconds that have elapsed since 00:00:00 UTC on January 1, 1970. It is used in Unix-like operating systems and file formats. Because it doesn't deal with leap seconds, it is not a true representation of UTC. Check out Unix time for yourself by typing "date +%s" on the command line.

Fun fact: December 28, 1969, is Linus Torvalds' birthday, which makes him older than Unix.
