Unlike most here, I always pronounced Mt Xinu with an
eye, not an eee.  I don't know where I got that, though.

I did know Ed Gould via USENIX and DECUS, but that doesn't
make my pronunciation correct.

As an aside, anyone know where Ed is these days or how he's
doing?  I last saw him at a USENIX conference, probably in
San Jose in 2013 but I'm not sure.  He showed up just for the
reception; he'd retired, and had cut away most of his famous
beard because he was spending a lot of time sailing and it
got in the way.

It is indeed Mount Z-eye-nu.   (I used to be its President. ;-)   )

Ed is living in the Walnut Creek area.  He has indeed retired and he and 
his wife do indeed do a lot of sailing.

Excellent! That's how I'd always heard it. Glad to know it's right.

We pronounced it as Mownt Zeye New when I was managing a lab of IBM RT's
running Mt Xinu's MSD 2.6 as a grad student.

Don't know how it is supposed to be pronounced but I have
always pronounced it as 'zai-noo, with xi the way the greek
letter ξ is pronounced in English.

Not that I know, but I have always said "zeenew" for the (unrelated)
embedded OS by Comer and "mount zeenew" for the software company.

Armand Hammer, the American businessman and unofficial commercial attache
to the Soviet Union, had nothing to do with Arm and Hammer baking soda,
though he did buy stock in the manufacturer after being asked about it one
too many times.  Armand was probably named after the "arm and hammer" logo
of the Socialist Labor Party, an anti-Marxist  group who favored the
development of revolutionary industrial labor unions, to which his
father belonged.

Well this is a weird coincidence, 2021 matches the 1993 calendar
so a retro calendar for this year could be photoshopped together

The year doesn't even appear that many times on the original.
