  • How Do You Pronounce "Unix"?

    How do you pronounce "Unix"? I've been wondering for a while...

    Is it like "oo-nix" or like "uh-nix" or what?

      Oh.. it seems so obvious, I don't know why I didn't include you-nicks as one of the options. :-/

          Yup, that's the way I always thought it was pronounced.

              Yep, it's pronounced like You-nicks. That's how I've always been saying it, anyways

                Is it really? Or is that just how you'd pronounce *NIX?

                    I always thought that it was "You-nicks."

                    But while we're at it, how do you pronounce MySQL? I've always said "My-Squall," but everyone else says "My-Sequel."
