So, according to Jonathan Schwartz (who should know), Sun has decided to change its stock ticker symbol from SUNW to JAVA.

The comments on that blog post are mostly in the huh? category, and I tend too the one that says this is sillier than if Apple were to change its ticker to IPOD.

I'm not sure if JAVA is a good choice as a ticker symbol. MSWY would have sounded better to me. May the Schwartz be With You.
