    pronouncing LINUX

    how do you spell Linux? is it Lee-nux, or lee-nix, lie-nix.

    i have been using the second pronounciation for conversation, but it turns out the people i talk to, all say it differently.

    can someone help me here!

    thank you for your time.

    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"
