Interesting, I got the Zune software tonight in the regular Windows Updates

ZuneTonight, I did a Windows Update and was kind of surprised to see a new optional Windows Update package.

ZuneTonight, I did a Windows Update and saw an optional Zune software install.  I'm getting into the whole WP7 world, why not get into this syncing/transfer mechanism sooner than later eh?

The graphics look distinctly different than other Microsoft apps (Office, VS, etc).

Zune installing

The signal it's completed is a bit humorous as well.

Zune install complete

I saw the icon on the desktop, so I figured, hhhmm why not run it?

Zune at runtime

THAT doesn't looks like anything I'm used to seeing from Microsoft in the past.  Toto we're DEFINITELY NOT in Kansas anymore!  This looks cool and a little bit frightening at the same time.  Nothing is predictable, yet, very easy going and some how I'm at ease with exploring, poking, prodding, teasing here and there.  hhhmmm interesting........  Kind of like what I've heard Markus Egger talk about, "explorability."  Makes you feel quite comfortable to try things out, without too much fear of GPFs. LOL

Now that I've had my little bit of distraction, it's time to grab a coffee and get coding.
