Post ISA or I.S.A.

I hope I can set this Poll up correctly, if not, just post your opinion and tell me how. This is the first time I've posted a poll so...

When your talking about old ISA cards, would your pronounce it Isa or would you say I-S-A? I personally would say I.S.A. because it IS an acronym standing for Industry Standard Architecture but everyone else I know says Isa. Take a poll...

I S A, spell it out, like I do with MySQL (my S Q L). Some people say "My Sequel", which is technically wrong.

Not me... I-S-A is Isa. GUI is Gewwi.

Let me clarify, I would not say Isa in front of people that that had no idea that I meant ISA. Know what I mean?

Here's a question: if you call ISA "Isa", what do you call PCI?
