Free business ad supported software

I recently read an article about free software for businesses that are ad supported - some accounting software and some medical software for doctors and clinics.

So I thought - why not NAV?
In the USA, we could have the early morning ad - "trouble getting started? time for a Starbucks run."
Lunchtime - ads for restaurants advertising their specials.
Afternoon - time for a pick me up - things go better with Coca Cola.
End of work day - happy hour specials.
And for those conscientious after hours workers - treat yourself to Amazon's amazing specials.

Microsoft could get in the action too - be the first one on your block city to own a Windows phone...

    The sad part is, I wouldn't be surprised if a partner does come out with something like this. We will lease you a copy of NAV, $xx / mo for no adds, $yy less if you have adds.

    Businesses would rather want employee to work than to look at ads or be distracted by ads.
    Most ads are only paid when clicked on.
    Most add go for ~.01 cent per 1000 users. And most nav users are in 5-100 users. You do the math.
    UI Real estate on RTC is already scarce.

    Sounds like the perfect business model for Microsoft's online division.
    They can add it to Bing.

    BTW - today's joke may be tomorrow's business plan!
