FAQ: If he is Linus (with a hard "I") then why is it Linux (with a soft "I")?
Apparently it isn't Linus in the first place. William Kitchen tells me
"I was wondering about that myself for a long time. Then I heard an audio sample in which Linus pronounced his own name (this is in the sndconf utility). It didn't sound like a hard "i" the way he said it. I'm not sure if it sounded more like the soft "i" as in "pin", or like a hard "e", something like "Leenoos".
