Sun open-source diva departs for Intel

Danese Cooper, who has led Sun Microsystems' interactions with the open-source community for six tumultuous years, has left for Intel.
Cooper was the self-described open-source diva at the server and software company, representing outside members of the cooperative programming movement to Sun and vice-versa. She will continue her open-source work when she joins the chipmaker on Monday, but in an interview, she declined to share specifics.
"They're kind of the silent partner of open source. It's their architecture this is all happening on," Cooper said of her new employer in an interview Friday. "They've done some open-source stuff. I think they'd like to be doing more."
