And you pronounce VSIDO . . .
« on: March 24, 2013, 11:17:29 PM »
Hi, all -- Just a question after writing a blog item about this great distro.

So how do you pronounce VSIDO?

Vuh-SID-oh?

Vee-SID-oh?

E-I-E-I-O? (the Old MacDonald version)

Just curious. Also, I think I have an idea where the distro gets it's name, but I'll save that for another discussion.

I'm a rebel: "sido" being the past participle of ser (to be) = were

vee-seedoh   :D

Just because I'd bet most would go with "vee-SID-o"

OK, that's all garbage: vee-sid-oh is my choice!

Thanks. I talked about it last week briefly in a presentation at Felton LUG, and I called it vuh-SID-oh, accent on the Sid. Thanks for the correction.

[It also occurred to me that it could be a Roman Numeral 5-Sid-Zero, but I thought I'd leave that one alone.]

As for the name: Is it V(ast)-SID-O(ne)?

That would be it... Vanity aside, it is unique, no?

Odd.... I knew where the name came from and I still pronounce it wrong in my head  :D

Vee-Side-Oh ...... yes I realize this is incorrect and makes very little sense but that little devil that told me to install KDE also told me how to pronounce it!

It is, indeed, and an excellent naming convention. However, it took me awhile to figure that one out.

Vanity would be "Me-Sid-Oh" ;)

In the Sunday Morning Linux Review there was a lot of discussion about the name...  I suppose I could hyphenate it :D

V-SID-O

Wow, cool review on SMLR!  Mary Tomich who does the review actually mentions she came across the VSIDO distro from reading JedsDesk!  And I thought I was the only one who read what I write!  :D
