    Yep, it's Li-nux. At least all the finns say Li-nux.

    We don't have problems like that because we pronounce everything exactly the way it's written. :P

    Yep, that's how it goes. We finns pronounce lin the same way as you pronounce lynn, so we automatically pronounce "linux" pretty much like you'd pronounce "lynnucks"...

    It's because we pronounce the letter i as "i", not as "ai" or "ie" or something...

    um... yeah... /Genie gets a headache
