    "Has an ubuntu drip"

    Hey! As you can see below my name to the side, my current title is "Has an ubuntu drip"... it's been irritating me for a while, that "n" should not be there. Can somebody sort the titles out?

    Re: "Has an ubuntu drip"

    This is a common misunderstanding. It's actually correct.

    It's not pronounced you-buntu, it's ooh-buntu. Therefore, "an" is correct.

    That should clear it up.

    Edit: Actually, I suppose you already knew that about the pronunciation. It's proper english to use "an" when the word starts with a vowel sound other than y (but in the case of "you-buntu", "a" would have been correct).

    The titles are for humor. Don't lose sleep over it.

    I'm just so used to pronouncing it the right way that I didn't even know what you were talking about.
