yes, i know, its dumb...  i was bored and needed to make something to prevent my insanity from surfacing

c64 restrictions, 14 colors, PC64 palette, and yes, windows still crashes even on a comodore 64.

the yellow window looks like it does because i had problems making it look right

I feel your pain with the yellow window. I've made games with coloured blocks/characters/platform tiles etc all assigned to different colours, and yellow is consistently the biggest pain in the ass. Red, blue, green, purple, grey, orange all allow for highlights and decent shadows with some hue-shifting, but yellow either demands a dramatic lowering of brightness and some hue-shift to add orange, or the highlight is indecipherable from the base colour, or the lowered-brightness yellow looks sickly. Yellow is the pickiest colour and the rest of your picture is a spot-on replication of the old Windows logo.

Colors = awesome

I dunno what's with the anti windows hype and all :D I've been working with it since I was 10 yrs old and no problem. I'm not saying it's great, but it certainly isn't as shitty as people make it look.

Sweet.
Much better than the real logo you see when booting up... that one's an actual photo reduction. Or at least, it looks like one.

it is the pc64 palette, used by a few c64 emulators

That's not the C64 palette we're to see, right? Looks really cool, but I'll stick with my ol' Mac.
