people are guessing even how to pronounce the OS.
Same with Linux...there are different ways different people pronounce it! Doesn't stop most people from using it! ;)

"different ways different people pronounce it!" doesn't mean it's right. I was asking the right way to pronounce it. I found the correct way, Sall-icks. Just as Linux is not Lie nicks. You can say that, but it wouldn't be the right way.

Once you go Salix, you don't go back

Some people actually do say "Lie-nux", though it feels strange to my ears. Try Googling how Linus Torvalds himself pronounces it.

All these problems go away if you're speaking some other language, such as Finnish (thought the great originator of our OS is actually a Swedish-speaking Finn).
