You're referring to the Bing tile? I've been using Windows 8 since the RTM, and I'd never bothered with the Bing app. I had to go look for it to give it a try. On my desktop setup I rarely access the Metro interface of Windows 8. Perhaps if I were on a tablet I might find more use for that interface.
The SERP layout certainly is different. It would take me a bit to get used to. The horizontal layout limits the amount of info on-screen at a given time and I find it harder to scan quickly.
