Is it "Swits", "Switpic" or did you just pronounce the letters?

SWIT pic seems to be commonly used

and either MIC bug or mc BUG (accent on either the first or second syllable)

I always thought of it as 'Sweat Pack' (seriously).

IIRC, this pronunciation was in Kilobaud magazine at some point.

I'll bet we agree that SWTBUG is pronounced "swat bug" too, then! :)
