    First, make them with this.


    My first orb is based on THE CAKE IS A LIE!

    But the cake isn't a lie :/
    Something like this and you have yourself a nice Portal Start Orb.

    I might make one after but I don't have Windows 7 so...

    Just pirate it. It's not that hard. Search up a torrent, download, burn, install. Done.

    After upgrading and downgrading quite a few times from Windows XP to Windows 7, I think I know [​IMG]

    Err, is your computer from 2003 or something? There should be no reason to downgrade to Windows XP from 7.

    Didn't Windows 7 Pro have XP mode with it? I haven't used it myself (only have Home edition) but I would think it gives the best of both worlds.

    Oh, and, don't advocate piracy. Aside from it being taboo on these forums, it's unlawful anyway. Microsoft go to all their trouble to create an OS that makes most people happy, only for people to use them whilst refusing to pay/support them? It's just not right (although, that said, my Windows 7 only cost me £30 per copy...).

    Anyone can get Windows 7 cheap, just buy a license on ebay and DL an install disc. The high price in retail stores in cause of the DVDs and manuals included in the retail package.

    Yep, you're correct Rockstar. An operating system made nine years ago and is more vulnerable to trojans is better than a modern OS that is less vulnerable to trojans.
    That makes perfect sense!

    It looks pretty nice!
    I'll try to make one with SexyCloud. [​IMG]

    Ebay is a horrible place to purchase Windows7. It's extremely likely that you'll get scammed.
    If you're a student (uni, college) you can get Win.7 for cheap. Only if I was a few years older.

    some programs still work better on XP, and with a good combination of antivirus, firewall and common sense you wont get any trojans

    My lame custom SexyCloud Start Orb.

    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    I guess I should make it a bit bigger. Your orb is a bit too big LeLouchVII. It barely fits.
    Edit1: I made a much better one.
    Edit2: A Prinny orb was made!
