I've argued for years that postgresql.org's front banner should read:
Postgres + SQL = PostgreSQL
The fact that novices can't pronounce the name correctly is a
problem. People will be afraid to raise the possibility as a
solution in the enterprise if they think they'll look like a fool
pronouncing the name aloud. I remember back in '94 being "corrected"
when talking about Linux in the enterprise - and I was corrected in
the wrong direction.
Someone needs to poke the propaganda minister with a stick.
