    I get it. But in abbrevations, all letters should be capitals. So what you were talking about should be written like ''PMS''.

    I can't believe you started a poll over this. Not even a fair poll at that.

    I wasn't saying that you can't say it I - O - S with the individual letters. When you say IOS, it covers the plural form. You don't need to say IOSes or especially IOS's.
    Damn I suck!!!!

    Lol, I was just curious what other people thought. If you want, I will remove your name from the first post, then delete this one.

    I don't care about my name being in it, you just missed the point of what I was saying.

    Besides, Marcan and bushing call it IOS and I bet the people at N do as well.

    Looking at the poll title, I can see how it would be misleading. It should be read "How do you pronounce IOS?". The poll isn't about the correct pronounciation. I was just wondering if I was the only person who said each letter individually.

    Let's just leave it at this: glad it's in the LOUNGE, it'd be Mod-actionable for THE MOST INANE THREAD EVER!!!!

    Joostin: before I even looked who started it, you were Suspect Number 1 (LOL). Let me know when you're done, as I'd be more than eager to close it LMAO.

    Lol, I posted this in the lounge for a reason. It doesn't matter how you pronounce it, I was just wondering what the majority was.

    Besides, have you even looked at other topics in the lounge? I really don't think this "THE MOST INANE THREAD EVER". There are topics about tatoos, smoking, favorite media players, computer desktops, internet connection speeds, and even favorite commercials. I was curious if I was the only person who pronounced IOS (which is related to the Wii, unlike 99% of the lounge topics) one letter at a time.
