Just installing the old Black Zune here, folks, and I’m here to say that either the Zune marketplace is running on an old 386 complete with a copy of Windows 98 or somebody’s got some ‘splaining to do. Like Ryan over at Engadget, I went through the Zune install rigamorale on a fairly new Gateway laptop and am now waiting patiently for the Marketplace to appear. I started this attempt at 9:25am this morning, EST, and I still haven’t downloaded my copy of White and Nerdy by “Weird” Al Yankovic.
I’ve restarted thrice already and each time I run the Zune app it goes through the setup again and then freezes on the marketplace. Let’s pray these are opening day hiccups.
