How does one not know how to pronounce Linux anyway?
Here's my theory on technology pronunciations:
#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.
