Microsoft's had ads on Google for ages, but then they where paying for that, this is just free advertising on a rivals product... it'll be interesting to see what they do about this. Can Google complain as they have thousands of adverts recorded from TV anyway?

Microsoft 25? Wikipedia says their 32 :D

I don't think it's free, even though it's not disclosed as an ad.

It's actually an ad served as a Flash object that contains an YouTube player and other things. The ad is from DoubleClick.
