Exactly, a menu has more discoverability. However, once I found that the start menu folders still exist I just did what I've always done with Windows: created my own toolbars in the taskbar containing my most used shortcuts. I hide the title and text and view small icons, then if you make the toolbar too small to show all the icons they get a double-chevron that acts like a menu start button, Then folders that are only visible when the chevrons are clicked expand like a menu as well. It's the only way Windows 8 is usable for me.
