How does Linus pronounce his own name?

Postby Alex01UK » Fri Dec 12, 2014 7:24 pm

That is how Linux is pronounced. The same way as Linus pronounces his own name. Has anybody got his no? I'll give him a ring and ask him personally. ;)

I always pornounce it: ''Lynne Ucks'', but each to his own.......
