Windows Advertises As "Suse Linux"

Windows advertises as Suse LinuxSo I was nosing around's Linux pages when I saw the page in the image to the right (click it for a larger image) had an Ad for SUSE. I thought, "cool" and looked closer; the url listed below the ad said "". First I thought, "What a screw up" until I clicked the link and it took me to a Microsoft page trying to convince visitors to use MS Windows Server.

Does this cross the line into unethical when a company uses a competing company's name as an Ad?

Maybe not, maybe it's just odd... Dammit, this is the second MS post in 24 hours, I need to find something better to write about...
