ESRI was a sponsor at FOSS4G 2007, and had a Lab.
Who knows, maybe they will be involved somehow in
FOSS4G 2009(for sure they won't be excluded just
because they are viewed as competition for FOSS).
Perhaps they can have a booth in the exhibition
(and maybe gvSIG wants to have a booth right next
to the ESRI booth ;-)
