On the pronounciation of our beloved OS, the main man has his say here:

http://groups.google.com/groups?selm=1992A...sinki.FI&rnum=3

 

which leads to LEE-NUCKS (Bruce Lee nuckles or so..), not LIE-NUX (it's a lie)

 

Or maybe I am messing up between another life I have/had on the side...

 

Huh i have heard linus pronounce it as lin as in lindows nix as in unix in the mp3 file("Hello, this is Linus Torvalds, and I pronounce Linux as Linux!").

It sounds like lee-ucks in that to me. But i see how you could get it wrong, it's close, maybe even halfway between icks and ucks.

 

:shock:

No that is correct, the problem is with the western/latin transcription of Lee as in Bruce Lee. In any case, it should not sound like (big fat) LIE - nucks...
