I have never heard anyone say Gee-Nome. Does anyone actually do this or is the Cisco Network Academy bullshitting me again?

    I thought the official promulgation pronunciation was "guh-nome", which follows how GNU wants to be pronounced. Crazy people

    Miguel de icaza says "nome," with a slight Spanish accent.

    My CS3 teacher said it best:

    "There's the right answer,
    There's the wrong answer,
    And then there's the CISCO answer."

    It's just a way to recognise who knows Gnome through personnal experience and who knows Gnome through Cisco.

    @hash-table Since english is not my first language, I had no idea that the word "gnome" was pronounced "nome" (actually I knew it, but forgot a long time ago). Now I want to create a project named "nome" just to confuse people who are talking about one or the other.
