What's an M$ ad doing on a linux site?

This screenshot is from http://www.linux-mag.com/content/view/2830/ at the time I checked it out, There was an MS ad running on it (as you can see). Would an M$ site or even a pro M$ site ever carry an add for an open source project? I don't think so.

I clicked on the add just out of curiosity. It was blocked by firefox. Unlike IE, firefox knows what's good for you! There is however an option to override firefox's popup blocking, even then the ad didn't do anything more than take me to another page that had nothing more than the ad. This time it seemed slightly more animated.
