on tv: germany votes – for micrsoft?

on friday a german linux user group complained about ARD (germany’s public tv station) showing microsoft’s logo in their projection diagrams.
they consider it as surreptitious advertising, but cout ruled that it wouldn’t rule until the show is over.

here’s 2 alternative options of pluging something clever.

    now that’s a pretty stupid thing to complain about.

    d’you think so?
    mycrosoft CI is always worth a complaint.

    well, the real question is: would anybody have cared had it been an apple logo?

    guess I would have messed around with it anyway.
    surreptitious advertising on public tv is no good ide, no matter what company is advertised.
