Wikipedia wrote:
The wildebeest (plural wildebeest, wildebeests or wildebai), also called the gnu ( /ˈnuː/ noo[1] or /ˈnjuː/)[2] or "water buffalo", is an antelope of the genus Connochaetes. It is a hooved (ungulate) mammal. Wildebeest is Dutch for "wild beast" or "wild cattle" in Afrikaans (beest = cattle), while Connochaetes derives from the Greek words konnos ("beard") and khaite ("flowing hair").[3] The name "gnu" originates from the Khoikhoi name for these animals, "gnou".

its the same thing. it is also pronounced "new"

JT - you are sooooooooooo wrong...

Its not a disney video, its actually written by two British writers called Flanders and Swan, who wrote the Gnu song to explain the differences. Wikipedia is wrong too, as it is written by the general public, rather than a leading authority. Of which I am one.

Kempo - amazing you found my old account on Rot - didn't know it was still there?

Gnu is also a Unix-based OS, or indeed an asteroid!
