|I pronounce it like "gnome" as in the little magical creatures of lore. However, things like "gaim" I pronounce with a hard "g". Chris Verges|
|GNOME stands for “GNU Network Object Model Environment”. GNU stands for “GNU's Not Unix”, and has always been officially pronounced “guh-NEW” to minimize confusion. Since GNU is GNOME's first name, GNOME is officially pronounced “guh-NOME”.|
However, many people pronounce GNOME as just “NOME” (like those short people from legend), nobody will hurt you if you find this pronunciation easier.
