Here's my theory on technology pronunciations: smile.gif
#1 A lot of geeks (including myself) don't communicate with other geeks (via tongue & ear) so we never actually hear all the words that we type/read.
#2 The *NIX community is creative in a wonderfully warped way and takes pleasure in being a bit eccentric and obscure.
#3 The world is a big place and there are many languages and accents. A written word can be pronounced many, many ways.

Linucks...that is how I pronounce it.

and real geeks never talk to each other face to face, they have a hacking competition. I remember the time when i use to attack my neighbors pc and he be shutting down my pc all the time remotely. He bipassed my mom in those days and used a floppy to enable netbios and he shut my pc down when he detected my attacks. It took me a while to figure this out cuz I am so dumb when it comes to stuff like this.

so....so funny! biggrin.gif

and here i was thinking i was cool because i would take a snapshot of a windows computer (print screen) and make it the desktop wallpaper, move the start bar to the right of the sccreen and make it as small as posible

repeat 20 times

those computers were out of commision for 3 weeks until they gave up and reinstalled smile.gif
