That Zune 2.5 update sure installs fast

Zune installation complete

Random, I know…but it just had to be said. One of the absolute banes of my history with the software is how freaking long it took to install it. Even when updates were released, those typically took a little while from start to finish as well. So imagine my delight earlier this morning when I fired up the Zune client to download the latest Zune 2.5 Spring Update, and having the entire process last less than two minutes. Fit and finish, indeed.

Glad to hear that the Zune is improving.  It’s not nice having to wait a long time to upgrade software.  It should be able to update quickly.  Microsoft did a great job fixing it.

yes i also noticed it installed very quickly,i wasn’t too worried about it slow install though ,i have a slow pc so i usually encounter it most of the time.
Here is a software for Zune,which supports track scrobling to last.fm
Zuse is the only onen to support lastfm for zune.its is a little buggy at times.

I agree, when the install was pushed via Windows Update, I went to get a drink a water and it was already finished!  I figured, oh it must have failed or something, but sure enough it was there and working with the new features!  Microsoft seems to get things right on the third try or so…
