Lih? Lie?

What is the offical pronunciation of “Linux”?

Lih-nux or Lie-nux? I have heard people call it both, and I have both sides make fun of the other for the way they pronounce it. Any Redhat reps here? Anyone else know?

See How to pronounce Linux. From that site you can link to a download of a .wav file of Linus Torvalds himself pronouncing the word. It sounds like LEE-nucks to me…
