We recently had a chance to review Google Design. Without beating around the bush with verbose SEO-driven preface, here’s our quick take on it.
Pros - what you get from reviewing and following Google Design guidelines:

- Exposure to principles of software- and hardware-driven usability, where design is used to skin functionality instead of defining it

How Adobe Muse is completely changing design and coding for web?
Short answer - it is not. Adobe is always torn between noble aspirations of creating unified design / development software and the less elevated urge to make money by selling that same tool as multiple products. Hence the ongoing parade of various stiffs, headlined by ImageReady and closely followed by Fireworks, that have either gone to oblivion or are on the way there. Adobe Muse awaits a fate no different.
