Have you got a chance to test this 3D Lib on Zune HD?

I haven't, but my understanding is that Zune only really supports 2D stuff. Even if it did support 3D, I don't think that the performance would be very good at all. That said, the engine itself could probably run as long as no 3D rendering was done, but there wouldn't be much point to it. May as well use a 2D library and avoid the additional overhead of all the 3D calculations.

Zune HD does support 3D. Please see some of the currently supported apps: http://www.zune.net/en-us/products/zunehd/default.htm

There are some really nice 3D apps especially Audiosurf.

While the Zune HD clearly has support for 3D graphics, the current XNA Zune developer extensions do not expose this functionality.
