Which one is the best as far as fully featured and everything, all that the whole 9 yards.

I can't get 8.1 to install on my Shuttle XPC HTPC so I figured I'd fake it, I know I'm also going to use Pokki mainly due to it's app's section and I'd just like to have a good 8/Metro UI as I think it'd be a perfect fit for a UI on a Tv Screen.

 

I did see and like that Newgen allows you to create tile groups which I thought was really nice, couldn't find a real run down list of features for Mosaic or Newgen though and not really too interested in WinMetro.

But I figured I'd ask the experts for the differences.

I've used WinMetro and Omnimo. Both of them work completely different but look pretty good. I've never heard about NewGen and Mosaic before.

I forgot all about  Omnimo or maybe it'd be safer to say I forgot all about because of it's complexity and how back then when I first tried it wasn't multiple screen friendly...

So I'm looking for something that add's screens as you add tiles and shortcuts, like how the real Metro UI is, so I can scroll back and forth with my mouse wheel.

 

When I first tried Rainmeter  Omnimo it was a pain especially on a touchscreen and you had to sometimes typically set everything up it wasn't too predefined.
