Can a htpc do all that mozaex or kaleidiscape can do?
That's a tall question to ask. It all depends on the HTPCs head end software. It also depends on you technical ability to program control into the HTPC software.
I would say if your computer savy (Linux included) and don't mind extensive programming and some trail and error; an HTPC may save you a few $ and provide more customization.
If you don't want a project... get the "off the shelf" solution.
