Adobe taps a Java-heavy CTO

Sun's desktop CTO is leaving for Adobe. Will it make a difference, one way or another?

Sun just lost the CTO of its desktop division, Hans Muller. Not to worry, though, the open-source world gets to keep him as he's heading down the road to increasingly open-source friendly Adobe to work on Flex. Muller apparently wasn't part of the Sun layoffs, and remained a good employee to the last, clearing up loose ends in the very same breath that he announced his resignation.

What does this mean for Adobe? A great new technical lead for open-source Flex. And for Sun? Probably not much, but I'm sure Sun would have preferred to keep Muller.
