Hey guys... following the success of my last start orb for win7, many people asked me to make it work, design wise, on the large button taskbar and have it centered a bit more.

So here's the second version without the border and perfectly centered.

The archive contains 2 version: one for the tight taskbar users and one for the standard, large icons taskbar.

Hope you like it!

Thanks a lot, works fine, looks really good and clean with the smaller taskbar. Do you think you could make this into a boot animation?

glad u like it... dunno about the boot animation... I was thinking of also making one for the Maverick theme but I think it's a bit risky handling those system files which could break your system.
I will think about it and if I get the time I might give it a go.

thanks man! glad to hear positive feedback from users.
I was thinking of making a PackMan start orb, what do you think?

I like your minimalist style - don't lose that. Start orbs have been becoming too crummy and bloated these days. Keep it simple and elegant. I think I might have seen PacMan orbs already and personally, I'd advise you to come up with something completely original (unlike my start orb... =/). Look at the Most Popular orbs of all time and what the majority of users seem to support. Good luck! And once again, good job!

thanks.. again for the compliments my friend!
When I create something, either music or graphic design I try to let my imagination do the work and also try to stay away from others people work... I really hate others that are copying other artists.
When some good idea will come to me and have enough time, I will make another start orb so... keep in touch!

Sounds good! Yeah, I do a bit of music production too and you are absolutely right. My friend asked me why i have such a blank wallpaper (just a dark grey color) and I said, I don't like being influenced. When I come up with something, I make it. I'll definitely be looking out for your work!!
