Why off topic? I'm not going to write about how wonderful the ribbon is or isn't. I was thinking, about the Ribbon, that some people seem to have some trouble saying Revit. They say Rivet or the sound a frog makes, Ribbet.
Now with the ribbon we have more opportunities like this one:
The "Wevit Wibbon" (Elmer Fudd's voice)...
Imagine a conversation if we're drunk?
This reminds of Archicad. We have an architect in our office who, in all seriousness, pronounces it "Arch-e-cad" as in a roman "arch". No matter how many times he hears it pronounced correctly, he's just got it stuck in his head.
So what pray tell is the correct pronunciation? Rkeycad?

@ Steve: of course - as in "architecture" (you did a nice phonetic spelling btw). You ask that as though you pronounce it differently? ;)
@ Anonymous - I imagine myself using an "outrageous French accent" and saying "rSheecaadd".
I've got the same gripe about people who mispronounce Navisworks. It's NAVisworks, as an NAVIGATION, not NOVisworks, as in "I'm a complete novice at all things BIM!"
