In case you haven't already tried Newgen, its an app that brings the Windows 8 Metro UI to your desktop, courtesy of ftwareftware.blogspot.com/p/newgen.h…
Currently I've released a Games widget and RAM widget, with a CPU monitoring widget almost ready for release.
Other Widgets I have planned are:-
- Hard-disk monitoring widget
- Graphics Card monitoring (both usage and hardware specs) widget
- Notes widget
So if any of you guys have any suggestions for more widgets, just drop a comment or send me a note, and I'll see if I can make it a reality
