"actuallly" that isn't a surprise.

Qt (pronounced "cute")
http://www.developer.nokia.com/Community/Wiki/Getting_started_with_...
http://www.developer.nokia.com/Community/Wiki/Qt

Even in http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Qt_(framework) they say:
Qt (/ˈkjuːt/ "cute", or unofficially as Q-T cue-tee)

The official pronounciation is "cute" but to anyone from the UK, that is unbearable as cute only means one thing - puppies, kittens etc. In the US cute has an alternative meaning which means 'neat' in the sense of something clever.
No-one I know here can bear to say "cute" when talking about Qt (which is a fantastic toolkit BTW).
