Microsoft and Channel4: Another letter of Complaint

Microsoft bribing for positive PR ... again!

It was only one week ago, that Microsoft was left with egg on it's face, after being caught red-handed trying to bribe bloggers for positive reviews of Windows Vista, as revealed by El Reg:

Now, only a few days later, it has emerged that they are trying to bribe people again into blogging (or submitting "Wows" as they put it) in favour of Vista, with offers of prizes for the best "Wow", specifically:

"a high definition video camera, AND a seven-days trip around the world to see the most stunning vistas, including Sydney’s Harbor Bridge and Opera House, Beijing’s Great Wall, Agra’s Taj Mahal, New York’s Empire State Building and Paris’ Eiffel Tower."

Microsoft and the BBC: A letter of Complaint

The following is an actual letter (Email) of complaint, that I've just sent to the BBC. I don't think any further introduction is necessary, as it speaks for itself:

Update: show your support for this issue at http://slated.org/bbc_microsoft_bias_vote.

Dear Sir/Madam,

I wish to complain about the article entitled "A quick tour around Windows Vista", which was published on the BBC website, and to voice a general concern regarding your relationship with Microsoft - a company subject to antitrust investigations in the EU, and previously in the US.
