Re: Wow

Cringe. It's naive to evaluate an entire OS based on one particular network tool or other tools that might be provided as defaults. Many tools exist and a good sysadmin will know then all and how to choose the most appropriate ones.

I *will* not pronounce it "foosa". If whoever created the spelling for it wanted it pronounced that way, they should have spelled it that way. If the claim is made that that is the way it is pronounced in whatever dialect that is supposed to be, then it isn't English.
