so the correct pronunciation would be deb'ian/deb'ee'an (as opposed

Why is it that so many americans have looked at it and said, "Deebian"?
I don't get it and thought I was wrong when I first talked to someone about debian.
But now I am vindicated and the universe makes sense again.

I have never uttered the word to anyone who is familiar with Debian, but when I do meet such a person I hope to be silent first, or stutter, so that person can first utter the word and then I can just repeat... ;-)
