He's not pronouncing Linux incorrectly, he's pronouncing it the way that most people pronounce it naturally before they hear an American say it ;-)

Linux (not lye-nux)

One of the early distributions of Linux (RH 5.1?) that I installed used a sound file of Linus Torvalds saying

"Hello, this is Linus Torvalds, and I pronounce Linux as Linux!"

as the test sound for sound card configuration. You can find the .wav file at

There is also a video at
http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=1061159908534146317&q=Linux
in which Linus explicitly states how Linux should be pronounced.
