The old store

I got an old pc back from repair today and it had been rolled back to 8.0 . I was jumping around the OS and ive come to the conclusion that there are places in app design that windows 8.0 does things better. Specifically the app view within the store app is better. I prefer the panelled vertical view and it's tabulated nature. The current page is pretty garbage. I think that designs like this (more akin to nextgen reader) should be how windows 8 apps are designed going forward. Anyone else feel that all the horizontal-ality has detracted from windows? PS I wish there wasn't so much white space on top, it feels like wasted space.
