Thanks to Jody Garnett and Archeogeek for their correcting my misrepresentation of OSGeo in my first post from FOSS4G. As they point out, OSGeo does not, as an organization, have it in for ESRI. Rather, their mission is a purely positive one: “support and promote the collaborative development of open geospatial technologies and data.” Indeed, I had no right to speak for the organization at all, having been exposed to it directly really only for a few days at that point.
Apologies for being caught up in the irrational exuberance of the moment, projecting my own opinions on the rest of the community, and generally overstepping.
