Even if it wasn't created for ReactOS that doesn't discount the idea that making everything out of circles was the theme of the font. I thought the size discrepancy between letters looked rather strange as well until I made the connection and saw why it was a good choice.

I don't know which "orb" you're talking about, but if you were thinking about the reactos logo, then you're wrong: the font is called "Century Gothic" and existed before reactos was born.
Nope. Pretty similar but it is the Tex Gyre Adventor:

Well, I just searched inside the SVG code to find the name of the font ^^ For example there: Line 1878 of "/art/Logo/OrbString/logo_text_standard.svg"

Look at the "R" in the Century Gothic, compare with the one in Tex Gyre, an with the main site Logo:
