I never used to care. But then all the saddos and neckbeards at uni told me it had to be ‘vuay’, rather than ‘vee-aye’. 

But then said unreliable people were telling me that Linux was pronounced ‘linix’ rather than ‘lee-nooks’ — despite the big man himself saying “who cares, do what you like”. Smart people are often pragmatic.

Cheers, Ben.
