In Windows 8, the "metro view" IS the start menu. It even says "START" in huge letters on the top left.
If you're in Metro and you start typing, it automatically initializes the search function, exactly like in Windows 7.

And there's no need for a start button on the screen, because you already have one on your keyboard. Since the "start menu" is a full screen application, it doesn't make sense to have a separate button in the interface.

I don't understand why that's so difficult to grasp. Windows 3.11 didn't have a start button either and it was the best Windows ever made. Poke tongue | ;-P
*derp derp, therez no bootan*
