Interface Customization: Things like this possible?

http://images.chron.com/blogs/techbl...es/win7jpg.jpg

Thats just one example of many I've see with a Windows Orb with icons surrounding it, in fact my friend told me he found a site with Icons ROTATING around a windows ORB.

I'm very enticed to set up a cool interface but, are things like that possible or is that just a photo shop screen?

How do I assign hot keys to my quick start menu at the bottom left?

Can anyone suggest me a good mouse icon set with a cool loading symbol etc. I'm at a loss,

I just want to make my windows 7 look the coolest, but I'm bad at computers haha.

Also cool interface program suggestions are welcome too,
So far I have the very cool Google Chrome Browser, and I've customized my fonts for clock etc. But I want more

Thanks in advance!

Yes they are,,, the top is either RocketDock or ObjectDock (probably OD)

The Circle Dock is here

Both Rocketdock and circledock are free applications. You can download circledock here: Circle Dock Download - Softpedia and rocketdock here: Download RocketDock - RocketDock.com.

Sick I want to put all the icons from my stuff into it. So then briefly, can I make it work like the bottom left? or are they just hot buttons, because that stinks XD,
I want it to work like bottom left where it is also my task bar of Windows 7
Can I do that? Can I hide the things along the bottom?
TY in advance

Not really sure what you mean, but you can place rocketdock at the bottom, and within its settings you can move it to the left or rigt or up and down. You can just drag and drop your icons onto the dock, and then delete them from your desktop. You can then hide your taskbar.

It sure is, but from, like China, you can't access that website, so that is why I linked the softpedia link.

I use RK Launcher

Doesn't need installation and is very customizable.

That's easy. Hide the taskbar (Or use some registry tweaks to completely hide it), install Circle Dock + RocketDock. Make sure you grab some good icons, though.
