This is like the long standing argument about how to pronounce .gif and the inventor long ago stated that it's pronounced with a j sound like jiffy peanut butter and not with a g sound.


The creators of SCSI originally pronounced it "sexy" but it almost immediately became "scuzzy" instead.

It's weird how these things work on the internet, where most communication happens through text. I often have that problem with computer acronyms and nicknames that I've only ever seen online or read in a book. It can be pretty embarrassing when I suddenly have to say something aloud and realize I don't actually know how it's really pronounced.
