Sponsored Linux ad Hijacked by MS?

Filed under
Microsoft

It would appear so. Helios of Lobby4Linux.com found a link this morning during a google search that shows a Linux website that is actually a link to microsoft.com. Some may think this is not "news", however we at L4L think it is. When are they going to redirect your paid ad to MS? And who exactly are "they". Lobby4Linux has begun an investigation into how this happened and who made it so. Why bother?

Because Linux and the people who use Linux deserve better.

This ad may be pulled so you can see a vidcap shot of the link and the clicked results at http://members.cox.net/bsm2005/informationweek-microsoft.mpeg.zip

The actual link is here.

Look for the sponsored link on the right that says "linux articles" Under it, it will read "informationweek.com"
