I'm not sure it's really a matter for opinion. Linus Torvalds, the
creator (with scores of contributing developers) of Linux, pronounces it
with a short "i," in English anyway. In his native language, it comes out
more with a long "e," although it's a subtle difference when you listen
to it.

I found this, oddly enough, by visiting, clicking the
General Info link, and reading the links:

The second link down is titled "How to Pronounce 'Linux'," and provides
audio links in two languages. Have fun.
