comment Why is “distro”, rather than “distri”, short for “distribution” in Linux world?
We do at work, so I suppose it could be considered technical jargon then. I never really thought about whether "normal" people would understand this word. But then, when I first heard it, it was obvious from context.

@Christian, interesting. Just as an additional data point: Are you in any way involved in retail or creating physical goods that need a distributor?

Good point. Best thing I could think of was 'man of steel' but that doesn't really contain 'made' anymore (but my guess is it's an ellipsis).

comment How to say that the phone is held between shoulder and ear?
Evan, there is nothing wrong with the phrase. I just like some variety in my writing, and I'm not a native speaker, so wanted to find out what real people actually say. And I'm not rejecting anything, I even up-vote every answer that makes a sensible point (which so far are all of them).

MetaEd, I read the FAQ and this question seemed on topic. Hence I posted. If you wanted to indicate I'm doing something wrong, I'd appreciate a more concrete criticism so I can fix it. Thanks!

J.R., I wanted to avoid 'poisoning' the results with my (probably wrong or clunky) ideas.
