...and how do you pronounce GUI??? :P/>
...because here, in spanish as you might know we don't use english words or english acronyms
I pronounce it as the phoneme "gui" sounds in spanish then I add the "mp". Just one syllable
oops! btw, the code in this post -if any- is released under the GNU GPL v2 or later, that means among other things that it hasn't any warranty.

Not that I'm much help but I pronounce it "GNU Image Manipulation Program." J/k! I pronounce it gimp as in limp. Btw, according to the jargon file gnu is pronounced gnoo or noo. No wonder we stay confused!

It's guh-new, says GNU.org
So even though my teacher calls it "G"-"N"-"U", he's wrong :)/>
My only exception is gnome, which I pronounce like the dictionary, nome with a silent g. Don't know why, maybe because it's a real word and was before the desktop!
Other than that, for me it's guh-rip, therefore grip; guh-imp, therefore gimp, etc.
