Submission + - Red Hat set to surpass Sun in market capitalizatio (

mytrip writes: In what may come to be seen as a deeply symbolic moment in the history of operating systems, Red Hat is on the verge of surpassing Sun Microsystems' market capitalization for the first time.

Sun, perhaps unfairly, represents a fading Unix market. Red Hat, for its part, represents the rising Linux market.

Given enough time for its open-source strategy to play out, Sun's market capitalization will likely recover and outpace Red Hat's. But for now, a symbolic moment is about to occur. The inauguration of the Linux-based economy?
