Not quite the triumph for the consumer that it appears to be, U-P.
If you read the small print, you'll see that most of the "money" is in the form of dubious discounts and vouchers for Microsoft's not un-dubious products.
quick windfall for Ca - desperate at present for any sort fo money: and not much else.
