Since the release of Windows 8, everyone is really curious about the Metro UI which looks clean and compact with the touchy feel.
There are a couple of software that imitates Windows 8 Metro UI, one of which is the rainmeter skin “Omnimo”. I posted about Omnimo and Rainmeter a few months ago. I noticed there’s a lot of interest with the Metro UI, so I surfed the net until I found an interesting software. So far this is the coolest Windows 8 Metro look alike UI I have tried.
It’s called the Newgen.
What’s cool with Newgen is that it has swipe functions just like the real Windows 8. A standy Screen that you can swipe to the top, Facebook, Twitter, a Store for your apps and some other features.
