Haha, Root, it's Linus Torvalds, if you're referring to the man who created the original Linux Kernel.

I've always pronounced nVIDIA, en-vid-ea.

Haha, the first time I ever saw someone type "LMAO", I thought it was "Lame-o"

Lol, I say "en-vidia." MySQL, I'd just say My and then say the letters.

...A Tea I would sound exactly the same as A T I. Theres no way of really defining that one.

Linux, I say Lin-ucks

Aim, Thats another one you really can't change...
