How do you pronounce Linux?

Here are the three most common answers given to the question ‘how do you pronounce Linux?’:

/ˈlɪːnɤks/ (‘leenooks’)
This is Linus Torvalds’ original pronunciation, based on the pronunciation of his name in Swedish. It’s rarely used by those who speak English as a first language, as it doesn’t seem very ‘natural’ to them. There are audio files (in various formats) of Linus Torvalds saying ‘Linux’ at Paul Sladen’s website.
/ˈlɪnʌks/ (‘linnuks’)
This is now Linus Torvalds’ preferred pronunciation, as he considers /ɪ/ closer to the original /ɪː/ than /aɪ/. It also follows the pronunciation of the English word ‘linen’. There is an audio file (in wav format) pronouncing ‘Linux’ this way.
/ˈlaɪnʌks/ (‘lynuks’)
The other major alternative is based on the pronunciation of the English version of ‘Linus’. There is an audio file (in wav format) saying ‘Linux’
