Critique by Bongaboi Nov 17, 2010, 5:35:32 PM
"I'm a PC, and Windows 7 was my idea." Such is the nature of the current incarnation of Microsoft Windows, the incarnation we know as Windows 7. For a time, I was content with using the previous incarnation of the OS, known far and wide as Windows Vista. But later on, in comes this new version that has become accepted far and wide as a relevant OS, just like the predecessor before that and the predecessor before that and the predecessor before that. There is something about Microsoft Windows that makes you say: this is what computing is all about.

That being said, I like the tool that you brought out here on deviantART. Now users will get to customize their own start orbs and have fun with it. I can't wait to use this baby. Five stars across. This was badly due.
What do you think?

this is a brilliant tool. Microsoft will do all they can to make the UI better, and yet it is the ability to customize the interface with tools like these that make it the best.

This tool is also extremely easy to use, and so it needs almost no input from a developer for users to be able to work it, which is more than can be said for some tools.

The program itself has an intuitive UI , and the wide vareity of options included lets individual users change the start orb in whatever way they want. Keep up the good work, Kishan Bagaria!

Thanks! I'm not exactly sure why that way worked and the other way didn't, but now I know what to do in the future. You're the best!
