    As for the background, Decor8 works just fine.

    -Change metro background. In win7, it was a registry tweak to change your startup screen's background. I'd like to do the same on win8 here, the default ones are just too wonky.

    -Get rid of that drag zone in desktop view on the top of the screen. As I will never use that craptastic metro split.
    (see windows 8 - How can I disable the drag handle on the desktop? - Super User)

    Good to have a stable system.

    Yes you can use that Skip M Suite to remove the drag zone.

    I see you mentioned Decor8, it does the trick so it seems.

    In case you're still interested, there is no need for registry tweaks for theme customizations, see more about that here:
    Special Themes (AeroLite and High Contrast variations)
    You can see some example themes where specific item colors are customized.

    For a plain start screen color customization (I believe this is the Metro color you mention) see this:
    Change your background, colors, and account picture - Microsoft Windows
