I'm trying to discuss it with my friends and I know whatever I call it will be the way they reference it probably forever.
Is it just Start Menu?
Metro Start Menu?
Modern Start Menu?

It's the "Start screen".

According to the MSDN "Building Windows 8" blog article "Designing the Start screen" anyway. :)

And according to Wikipedia:

The Start screen is the successor of the Start menu. This feature is present in Windows Phone, Windows 8, and Windows Server 2012.
