One thing about the Open Source community: there's no single

Take your pick. Both are widely used, and will continue to be
used, no matter what claims of authority are made.

Personally, I find myself veering between the two, depending on

sneer, giggle, or make faces about your pronunciation,
they're liable to get punched in the nose.
