Glad you liked it, Kier. Is it just me, or can everybody still see that
offensive propaganda on the right hand side of the page? I spent minutes
trying to identify contact routes to the Webmaster (to no avail). The advert
which clearly says it is "Sponsored By: /Microsoft/" reads:

Get the facts you need to make the choice between Windows and Linux. Just
click on the whitepaper of your choice to download:

RadioShack Saves Millions of Dollars by Choosing Windows Over Linux
After an extensive evaluation in which RadioShack compared Windows® and
Linux, the company selected Microsoft® Windows Server System? and Windows XP
Embedded. The company's move to Windows will reduce the number of servers in
its stores by 50 percent and save millions of dollars in hardware, software,
system management, and support costs.

Are LinuxToday totally stupid or have Microsoft paid them obscene amounts of
money to cave? Google used to place such things in AdSense slots before I
had msn.com and microsoft.com blocked... they seem to penetrate Linux Web
sites. It is not the first time I see this.
