I called it L-eye-nux for years, just waiting for some PC person to come and correct me, so that I could say something like, "Do you pronounce Microsoft with a US accent just because Bill Gates does?"
Sadly, no one had the courage to challenge me, and perhaps many quietly filed me in their mental compartments under "T" for "twit".
I've now given in and call it the same as everyone else.
