Zune Desktop Theme - Released By Microsoft [Makes Win XP Black]

I read that there's a new free win xp theme from microsoft called "Zune Destop Theme". It makes your win xp look black like vista and has no adaware or malware in the installation. Better yet you do not use any theme program to pull it up, as it simply becomes an option when you right click your desktop properties and choose "appearance".

The word is that microsoft calls it "Zune Desktop Theme" because they are currently promoting their new gadget the Zune mp3 player. Anyways it's free and I have a few questions about it since microsoft gives little info on it.

1. Has anyone successfully installed this and found it to run 100% fine without glitches or bugs?

2. Does anyone know if it is a memory hog?

3. Can this be uninstalled so you can make your theme back the way it was or does it destroy the original xp theme? (I ask this because during installation you have to install the theme into C:WINDOWS)

I'm a bit scared to use this because it installs to C:WINDOWS and I have no idea if there are any adverse effects. I use win xp home with service pack 2. Below are two sites with info on the theme:
