Windows 7: Start menu?

Start menu?

Maybe I'm completely wrong, but I thought I saw a picture somewhere of a windows 7 desktop where the start menu was this huge orb in the middle of the screen with icons around it.
Is this just a piece of my imagination, or can this be done?
It looked sick and I want to set my desktop up like that if possible.
Please explain how to do this, or link me to somewhere that tells me.

Please and thank you.

That's probably some sort of 3rd party utility such as Windows Blinds or Stardock.
