Zune on a stick?

Microsoft is, surprisingly, coy about releasing figures for sales of Zune, almost as if it's unloved and left gathering dust in the darkest corners of the electronic shops. However, one indication of how well the player might be doing can be extrapolated from Zune Marketplace installations: in December, a not-entirely-massive 0.22% of Windows users had installed the player, which suggests that (unless it did surprisingly well in the Christmas market), Zune's launch wasn't one of the great successes of the new media age.
