Nginx I still pronounce as "en-jinks" to myself and have to be guarded to remember to say "engine-ex".

MySQL had never been "my see-kwull" to me but always "my ess-queue-ell".

Then there's Linux ...


That's how I thought it was pronounced too. NginX could maybe have provided a hint...

Welcome to the enjinks club :).

The reverse is also happening to me - it has become very hard to see furniture advertised as latex, and read lay-tax, not la-tech.

Um, don't tell me LaTeX isn't "lay-tex"?
