Actually, SuSE is a German acronym, but I don't remember what it
stands for, except the "u" is "und". I looked in a pre-Novell
handbook, but could not find the words. In German, one would
have said ZOO-zeh. Now, the official use is SUSE--the German
is gone, and so, of course, is the acronym.

I think most of us pronounce it "Suzy" as in the Everly Brothers'
song, "Wake Up Li'l Suzy." I guess that is the same as the MJs,
but I never heard of them, so I don't know.
