Classic Shell: Not needed because you have a classic start menu already. I use the Windows 7 style, plus Classic Shell's skinning flexibility is unmatched. No native Visual Style or WindowBlinds theme can beat it, and neither can other Menu Replacements, AFAIK (Except ViStart, but ViStart is terrib...

It can't be a 3rd-party recreation of the features - the apps provide their live data in a way that only Windows understands, and Windows must in turn send that information to the live tile.

Classic Shell already has that feature on Windows 8, it's just labelled "Opaque", likely because it does in fact make the Taskbar opaque if Aeroglass 8.1+ is not installed. But if you do have Aeroglass 8.1+, you'll get a nice glassy blur effect instead.
