No, you're misreading it.
I'm very happy with OSGeo accepting funds from private companies.
Even proprietary software vendors.
But I'm not happy with OSGeo website containing advertisement
of proprietary software solutions.

Btw, at the time in which I wrote the mail, the sponsors page
was *empty*. Now it is not empty anymore, and I don't see AutoDesk
among the list of sponsors. Is the page correct now ?
I'm not sure this works, but the MD5 sum of the page I'm looking
at now is 786126e032bf302cd0900a8b58e228fc  sponsors.html
