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.

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!

repeat 20 times

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