Some serious thinking going on here! OK, so I use to say "Gee You Eye" until the Gooey people infected my brain! :lol: But then consider this: Do you say 'Nasə or "En Eh Es Eh" :puf_smile:

No, UX is new school. GUI was very much used 1990-2005.
Nope, UX predates that period. It encompasses the user interface, regardless if it is graphical. And by graphical we mean pixel-based, as computer screens used to be character-based before that. I still remember all the fun we had back then with incompatible graphics standards like SVGA and Hercules :geek:

There's also HMI or human-machine interface (which also includes input/output peripherals). But that term gives me a vision of plugging a cable into my skull :puf_bigsmile:

"Cognitive scientist Don Norman is credited with coining the term, “user experience” back in the early 1990’s when he worked at Apple"

You are right.

I was more referring to when it became a trend (at least in France). It was strongly attached to agile, design thinking, etc...

By the way I just discover than HMI is not a French term (IHM).

NASA is pronounced with a short "a" sound, as represented in the dictionary phonetically as | ˈnasə |
Nobody speaks each individual letter in this acronym, i.e. En A Es A (NASA), rather they say | ˈnasə |
So it's weird that, for some acronyms, people sometimes spell out the letters and others try to pronounce it as a word.
Language is interesting and weird! :puf_smile:

Everyone else. How do you pronounce it?
Gee You Aye.
Like Jee!
I do it both ways, G, U, I when talking in real life to someone, and gooey in my mind, i.e. when I read about it.
