What is the difference between LastModifiedDate and SystemModstamp

This question is fairly straight forward, but I can’t it figure out.

I am using the schema browser in the IDE to query some records and the SystemModstamp is actually 1 second later than the LastModifiedDate so they are obviously different. But hence the question: what is the difference?

Answer

LastModifiedDate is the date the record was last updated by a user.
SystemModstamp is the date the record was last modified (by a user, workflow, trigger, etc.).
