NeWS /nee'wis/, /n[y]oo?is/, /n[y]ooz/, n. [acronym; the ?Network Window System?] The road not taken in window systems, an elegant PostScript-based environment that would almost certainly have won the standards war with X if it hadn't been proprietary to Sun Microsystems. There is a lesson here that too many software vendors haven't yet heeded. Many hackers insist on the two-syllable pronunciations above as a way of distinguishing NeWS from Usenet news (the netnews software).
The Free On-line Dictionary of Computing (18 March 2015):

netnews news /net'n[y]ooz/ 1. The software that makes Usenet run. 2. The content of Usenet. "I read netnews right after my mail most mornings." [Jargon File] (1994-12-14)
