    Then it's a pretty poor joke since it links to the Internet Explorer 8 page and is blocked with both Adblock+ and Adsweep.

    If MS paid for that ad, that means they are helping ubuntuguide.org with money.

    True. I don't think it is a joke. I think it is a real ad. But still, pretty funny.

    the ads you see are targeted at you by Google Adsense. Dont blame MS, its your surfing that made Google think you are an IE user

    Oh, and do I get coolpoints if I write Lin$ux ?
