An awful lot of people pronounce it "Li-nucks", with a short i.
"Lie-nucks", with a long i, is often snickered at, though I'm not sure
whether you could call it "incorrect" as such.

However, Linus Torvalds pronounces it "Lee-nucks". I think that's as
authoritative as you're going to get anywhere. ;-)
