I liked the default appearance of SSMS in 2005 and 2008. 2012 is lousy by default.
My quesion is whether it can be made to approximate the way it behaved in 2008.

What I liked: Registered Servers and Object Explorer resided on nested vertical tabs
on the left-hand side of the screen. Queries stacked up on the right-hand side of
the screen.

I managed to get the Registered Servers and Object explorer to display with nested
vertical tabs (tabs at the top, rather than the bottom - that's ok). But if there aren't
any other vertical tabbed displays, then the tab on top fills the screen. There's no
point to that. Both Registered Servers and Object explorer are narrow trees. The
rest of the screen is white nothingness.

If a query is opened, it then fills the screen - empty. If I want that in a vertical tab
I have to manually make it one (right click, choose New Vertical Tab Group).

The question again: Is there a way to make the doggone thing behave?

-- =============== for those also wrestling with this ==================
The way I got the Registered Servers and Object explorer to behave this way was
to right click on a tab and play with the vertical tabbing options. It was a challenge
and I don't remember what the trick was exactly. But that's what it took.

It's a bit hard to visualise what you are trying to achieve, any chance of a screenshot of your 2008 layout?

    I agree. I'm not quite seeing what you are explaining. Could you provide screenshots of what 2012 is doing and what you have in 2008?
