You spell Linux. L I N U X You pronounce it Like Linext without the "t".
Mankind have a great aversion to intellectual labor; but even supposing knowledge to be easily attainable, more people would be content to be ignorant than would take even a little trouble to acquire it.

Whatever you do, don't pronouce it LINE-X
the "Lin" should be pronounced like the first syllable of the name "Lindsey"
the "ux" can be pronoucned a couple of different ways. Most people seem to say it like "ucks", but after hearing a .wav of Linus Torvalds saying it, I've started saying it "ooks"
