How Do You Pronounce "Linux"

Computers & IT - Android Forums - androidforums.com
I never questioned it before. I heard someone pronounce it differently the other day and got me wondering.

It is a topic that seems to be debatable.

Being an English speaker I rhymed it with the creators name "Linus". Apparently I was wrong.
