Quick Take: Java Is Back, Baby!

Sun, to my mind, has been a mite shy about Java lately. It's been years since I've heard Scott McNealy talk about "write once, run anywhere," and how Java is going to take over the world.

But Sun apparently cares a lot more about Java than I thought, as it's changing its stock symbol from SUNW to JAVA (a little more catchy, eh?).

This is actually pretty cool, as it signals a long-term commitment to the Java community.
