Can you say it right?

Here are a few computer terms I hear mispronounced by professors and professionals: 

GIF – Macintosh artists typically say GIF with a hard g but the correct pronounciation is with a soft g like JIFF.

MySQL – Windows SQL admins commonly say MySequel. But the correct way to say MySQL is My ess que el.

PNG – just say ping

Linux – Many professors at csusb use a long i… “line-ix” …Linus Torvalds, the inventer uses a short i… “lennix.”

Gnome – often people forget the g. the correct pronounciation: guh-nome
