"Pronouncing the word `` Linux'' is one of the great
mysteries of the Linux world. Americans pronounce the name Linus
with a long i sound, as in pie. However, because Linux was
originally based on a small, PC-based implementation of UNIX called
``Minix'' (pronounced with a short i), the actual pronunciation of
Linux preserves this characteristic-it's LIH-nucks. Think

Linus Torvalds" .au we've never been able to hear clearly enough to
have an opinion over.
