The software giant remained mum on most of the details, save for a single line in its latest 8-K filing with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission.

Here's that note:

On March 18, 2013, Kevin Lynch resigned from his position as Executive Vice President, Chief Technology Officer, of Adobe Systems Incorporated, effective March 22, 2013, to pursue other opportunities.

According to his corporate bio, Lynch originally came to Adobe through its 2005 acquisition of Macromedia, where he spearheaded the Dreamweaver software unit.

Since then, Lynch has been responsible for overseeing Adobe's research and experience design teams, focusing on multi-screen, cloud and social computing strategies. Oversees Adobe's Research and Experience Design teams

But speaking of "other opportunities," the big question on everyone's minds now is about where Lynch is headed from here.

CNBC tweeted earlier in the day that Lynch is headed for a job at Apple.

However, neither Lynch nor Apple have confirmed or denied this publicly.
