    I could be wrong, though

    You-Boone-Tu is how I say it. Then again, I say Nome for Gnome. I can't bring myself to prononce it like the purist do - Gah-new. But what the hell do I know. We say Ya'll down here in Texas. Go figure. Maybe we should have an African tell how to say it.

    "oo-BOON-too" according to http://www.ubuntulinux.org/support/d.../pronunciation

    Oh well, I kinda liked "you-bahn-too", but that sounds more african.

    That's what I said.

    oo-boon-too is African.

    It's us 'Anglicans' which say "you" "bunt" "two".

    I say the "you-bun-too."

    Can't say anything else. My friend insists on calling it "own-eh-ban-too" for some reason though.

    To each his own.
