How is it correctly said Xplorer2?

Post by sanferno » 2017 Jun 02, 16:04

Hello,

I was just wondering, how is it Xplorer2 correctly said?
I usually say "x two" or "explorer two", but is it "x square" or "explorer square?

It might be obvious for English speakers, but not so for foreing ones... I guess... or is it me that I'm completely nuts? :party:

My vote goes for "eks-plo-rer-two". I'm unsure if there can be a "correct way" though.

On the x2 title bar and on the web site it shows as xplorer² (xplorer superscript 2) so I have always thought of it as "xplorer squared"... but when I type x2 to refer to it in the forum I think "x 2" not "x squared"

So we are tied, it would be nice if our dear maker lights up our minds with his knowledge! :lol:
In the end he is the programmer, so he must know how he calls its beloved x2.

Personally, I pronounce it Beyoncé, but apparently that's not the official way to say it.
