I thought I should update my rant...
I learned I could enable dual monitors at full screen in VMWare. When I did that... and when I put Metro on the second monitor - it worked.
Metro isn't as bad as I portrayed it, so long as it doesn't dominate your field of vision every time you want to run something.
Some issues remain but I'm going to just say that I was a fool for posting what I did. Windows 8 with Metro is just fine - if you have two monitors. Edited 2012-03-02 03:25 UTC
