can you tell me with which programm and how do you make this?
Because when I make my own (not Ubuntu), it has very little quality and there's no transparency. I don't know whats the problem, maybe you have an idea :-)

use this: [link]

you can import pngs... the problem with the transparency is in the alpha channel... photoshop sucks at making start orbs... use GIMP cause when you add a png to the canvas it will automatically create a new alpha channel for that png keeping the transparency even when you save it as bmp.

it looks good but not perfect... if you take a look at a Ubuntu 10.10 screenshot you'll see what I mean... or maybe I'm obsessed by perfect pixels!

Pixels are squares, nothing can ever be perfect due to it being hard to make a circle shape out of tiny squares next to each other..

but this as it is, is already good enough... but if you wanna make changes then maybe fix the left dot in the outside of the circle

I don't exactly know how to fix it... cause like I said, in Photpshop it looks perfect but when the PNGs are combined and transformed into an orb by the Start Orb Creator software, then on the taskbar it looks all messed up.
I've also tried using StartOrbz Studio 3.1a but this software generated smoother but less clear orb... so I'm sticking to Star Orb Creator until I can find a better software.
