I forged these up in PowerPoint. Tell me what you think. Also, I can make them in other colours if you want.

You can also get them by downloading the Windows Vista Product Guide in docx format and then change .docx to .zip.

Only the blue and green ones are avaible but several nice other icons in .png format.

Actually he made an auto-form circle with a colored border of a specific width and the color ruler for the background and placed the Windows flag on it. It isn't that hard.
I often create icons/logos with Excel as well ;)

I've uploaded a guide to make an orb in PowerPoint: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jTHM2IomT3Y

I'd be interested in having other "animations" available in place of the flashy orb that involve the windows logo somehow. No idea how to make them though.

What kind of "animations" would you be talking about?

Whatever you can think of! Dissolving, Waving, Flashing, etc. Just something different that uses the Vista-style logo would be cool.

Actually, if you notice, the borders have gradients which to my knowledge you can't do with the standard lines (correct me if I'm wrong). Also, the bottom shine is radial and doesn't cover the whole bottom of it and since it was made in PowerPoint 2003, I can't make a gradient of more than one colour.

You can see my aforementioned guide on how to mock it up.
