i prefer to just say G.U.I. its much more understandable every once in a while ill say galaxy guy. But i just wiki'd it it stands for graphical user interface. which is short for G.U.I. so i believe that would be the pronunciation would be G.U.I.

Unfortunately the dictionary says it pronounced goo-ey like toffee

Not necessarily, there is no "correct" way as we have learned from above.

^lol computer illiterate? I don't see how - if anything, that would be computer literate. surprised

Anyway, pretty much everybody i know in IT say it like gooey. Even my teachers, Windows classes, Linux classes, Networking classes, Security classes, the list goes on - they all say it like gooey... Typing "gooey" is even weird of course, cause when I type GUI, I assumed everyone was aware of it being pronounced "gooey" ::shrugs::
