Hi, Tyrone!

 Leap seconds are a big issue that can not easily be corrected. It can cause major issues to the Linux operating system, Its minimal issue is crashing. Computer experts are working on preventing it and protecting applications when leap second is happening. It might still needs time for Linux to overcome this matter.
