I'd actually suggest that like someone else mentioned, you pronounce it the
way the SMEs you will be interviewing pronounce it. The pronunciation of
Linux is actually a touchy subject for many and if you pronounce the word
your way (the wrong way) in front of a sysadmin or other engineer, you loose
credibility and thus get your relationship off on the wrong foot.

I would discourage use of Lie-nucks and instead, Lin-ucks. It's the geekier,
thus right, pronunciation.

...err you know what i mean :)
