GIF pronunciation[edit]

I agree with your edit restoring both pronunciations, but not with your edit summary: what solid evidence is there that the hard G is "much more common"? -- Elphion (talk) 19:47, 22 May 2013 (UTC)

There is no solid evidence although I assumed it. I'm merely basing that on my own work in IT and experience living in several different countries. I guess the only actual evidence that both are used (but not that one is more common) is that so much fuss has been created (http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-22620473). If the pronunciation was universal then there wouldn't be such publicity. But, yes you're right - there is no solid evidence so I should have worded my summary better.--217.71.47.190 (talk) 19:56, 22 May 2013 (UTC)
