Sun Changes NASDAQ symbol to JAVA

Surprise, Surprise! You can read in Jonathan Schwartz’s Weblog that they will change the NASDAQ symbol of SUN Microsystems SUNW to JAVA!!!!
The arguments are: ‘… the number of people who know Java swamps the number of people who know Sun…SUNW represents the past, and its not without a nostalgic nod that we’ve decided to look ahead…Most know Java, few know Sun…Java means limitless opportunity – for our software, systems, storage, service and microelectronics businesses. And for the open source communities we shepherd.’
