What a pity they cannot spell "flak" - even in a headline!

I suppose that it depends on how you read it. "flak" is the stuff you use to shoot down a plane and "flack" has some meaning related to publicity. I could infer either as being correct. I might consider it flak because I think that it paints MS in a bad light, but, it might be Flack simply because they are receiving publicity (although bad) about it.

Interesting observation Mr. Barker.
