@Clifford internally i read it as var-ez because i learned it in a non-English context, but i when speaking i know i should pronounce it like "wares" (like "hardware")
@grainloom I'm in the ware-ez camp 😅
@Clifford "Wares", as in "teh hardwares and teh softwares". 😛
@claudiom The poll agrees at the moment! I can't do it though...wareEZ was how I've read this in my head for as long as I can remember! 😆
@Clifford And for me it's the other way around, heh. 😁
@Clifford I said wear-ez for many many years until finally learning that it might be wares, so in practice my brain still reads it as 2 syllables
@68km IT MUST BE TRUE THEN! I'm in the two syllable camp as well! 😆
@Clifford Growing up, I'd say "war - ez" but I only knew one other computer kid in my high school. I didn't hear it again until like two years ago where I had a manger that called it "wares" .. didn't recognize the term at first.
@djsumdog I still don't recognize it pronounced as "wares" without more context in conversation. Ware-ez is immediately identifiable to me.
@Clifford I've always silently snickered when I've heard you say "Ware-ez".
Mostly an instance for friends and family. Nothing special.
