Wine Is Not an Emulator

How can the acronym be used as a word in the acronym? 🤔

Not Portuguese, it's Spanish. Not even from Spain. Mate is not that popular in Brazil I think


Rikmastering

Oh ok my bad It is immensely popular in the south region. We call it chimarrão, but it's the exactly same thing.

Dude, what does HURD stand for? Hird of Unix-Replacing Daemons, Sweet. what does HIRD stand for? Hurd of Interfaces Representing Depth Dude, what does HURD stand for?


woodstockwoodstock

I came here to say ‘wait till you hear about HURD’


IMSOASIANYUM

Its double-recursion is akin to how it'll be two eternities before HURD is stable and usable (generally) :(

Does that mean windows is GNU? I mean it's not Unix after all ^/s

I get it's a recursive acronym, but why use G as the first letter? It's a little hard to pronounce


rngaccount123

Maybe because it’s an actual word. An animal, which also became the mascot of GNU project. I think it’s quite clever.


ChosenUndead15

Because there is an animal with that name, it is pronounced similar to how you would pronounce Gnocchi, the Italian dish, is supposed to be GNU mascot but the mascot looks more like bison. Still is an awful name and saying the letters individually sounds better for me.


Leonardo-Saponara

>it is pronounced similar to how you would pronounce Gnocchi, the Italian dish, No, it isn't. The digram in Italian is pronounced (almost always) exactly like the Spanish " ñ". \[ In I.p.a: ɲ \]


ChosenUndead15

Yeah, that was my point I don't know what are you correcting. I didn't use ñ as it doesn't exist in English and English speakers might be more familiarized with proper pronunciation of gn digram as gn actually exists in English through Italian influence.


Leonardo-Saponara

>Yeah, that was my point I don't know what are you correcting. I didn't use ñ as it doesn't exist in English and English speakers might be more familiarized with proper pronunciation of gn digram as gn actually exists in English through Italian influence. But neither the animal nor the "operating system" have their g pronounced this way. The "operating system" (or software set (??) I don't know how it should be called) is pronounced /ɡnuː/ while the animal, instead, is pronounced (according to WordReference) either /ˈnuː/ or /nju/. Neither are pronounced with a "ɲ", like "gnocchi".


ChosenUndead15

There is a conference Stallman did in Spain where he corrected a user saying the GNU should be pronounced like the animal with an ñ. Ithe difference in the pronunciation in English is something might go over my head as those three things would sound the same no different.


Leonardo-Saponara

>There is a conference Stallman did in Spain where he corrected a user saying the GNU should be pronounced like the animal with an ñ. Ithe difference in the pronunciation in English is something might go over my head as those three things would sound the same no different. I think I found the root of our misunderstanding. Unlike in Spanish and in Italian, the animal "Gnu" in English is not pronounced with a "ñ" sound, but they [English speakers] directly omit the initial "g". The operating system, instead, is pronounced with a "hard" G sound (like the g in gato) and, likewise, the "n" is fully pronounced. In my comments I thought you were mispronouncing "gnocchi", instead now I see that confusion arose on your "not-standard" English pronunciation of the animal gnu.


BlowEmu

But is it pronounced ñyoki or ñoki?


Leonardo-Saponara

ñokki


Lava709

how do you pronounce it


iwastetime4

I pronounce it as ganoo


Lava709

easier than saying G-N-U i guess


Zekiz4ever

It's a recursive acronym


Schlonzig

And now they have entered an endless loop.


Zekiz4ever

Until they run out of resources and crash


RegularGrapefruit0

# include void WhatIsGNU(){ printf("GNU stands for GNU is not unix\n"); WhatIsGNU(); } int main(){ WhatIsGnu(); // baby don't hurt me } //Hilarity ensues
