Call it anything you want.  Carolyn says "es double-yew tee" but who says she's right.

In Germany they pronunce it "es ve te" and in France "es double-v
te"... and that's the whole point.

I don't think SWT is a "cool" name for a Java toolkit. "Java",
"Spring", "Eclipse", "Swing", "Ruby" look definitely better than "AWT"
or "SWT", and that serves adoption as well.
I thought "SWT" would/could at least be officialy pronunced in a more
trendy way ("Sweet" or something else).

Cheers,
-Christopher
