This is great news, from where I sit, given our goals.

Congratulations, OSGeo folks: you've moved the market leader to decide to
 validate open source geospatial software. That's quite an acconplishment.

some more news regarding 52n on the ESRI Germany hompage:

It reads like OSGeo with a special focus on SDI, the wording is practically
 exchangeable. 52N was registered 2004-10-21 11:36 as a project at
 SourceForge while the above news regards the foundation of the company 52n
 this September (just in time for the Intergeo).

I chatted with Gunther Pichler (ex OGC Europe, now with ESRI Germany) at the
 Intergeo fair and he confirmed that ESRI is taking this project seriously
 and wants to especially tap on the academic and research potential of the
 folks involved with 52N.

52N had a booth at the OSGeo Open Source Park a week ago (I still owe a
 report in the Wiki on that event) and they were also present and interested
 at FOSS4G. It will be interesting to follow this development as it is yet
 another tentative Open Source contact by a proprietary vendor. Chris also
 talked to the people involved with 52n and reported in the board list, its
 available in the archives.
