Microsoft "InfoWorld's Woody Leonhard uncovered the fact that Microsoft is paying some organizations to adopt its Office 365 cloud service, mostly in funds that Microsoft earmarks for their customers' migration costs and other required consulting.

I am not bashing Microsoft because they want to make money. They have a long history of anti competitive behavior and this is pretty much on par with that. They are paying to get customers. Thats pretty much in line with charging more for Windows to OEMs who sell other OS's on their computers. If it was a decent product, they wouldn't have to bribe people to use it.
