 Pronunciation of Software Names

"Today, "experts" use "jargon" not only to put out verbal neon signs that they know the language of the subject at hand, but also to differentiate between those who know and those who do not know. It's almost like a test, a rite of passage within a community... if you don't know the language, how can you know the subject? This article will examine how language is used in the Free and Open Source Software community and how you as a newcomer can more easily fit in by using the right pronunciations for the right terms."
