on Wall Street this week, the world will be watching to see if the

will be the first time the operating system has faced the hardened
scrutiny of the Street."
"But after a year of good press, some analysts say the first day
for Red Hat's IPO could be a Cinderella story -- but no one quite
knows when, or if, the clock will strike midnight."
