You can definitely do it.  Obviously it would have to be custom.  Here's a couple examples of blog posts about how to do some custom search visualization using refiners -- I know it isn't exactly what you are trying to do, but I thought it might give you some insight about to interface with the refiners that would allow you to build a web part that displays like you are looking for:

Answer 3

I think you're going to be writing a heap of code to make that happen.  The refinement panel does not support exact result counts unless you are using FAST Search for SharePoint.  Even then, I think formatting it in that matter might take some work if it's even possible.  More than likely you would have to write your own web part and execute multiple searches (one for each tab to get results and a count).

Thanks Corey.

Any sample code or suggestions please let me know. I was alredy created metadata properties for Search Moss 2010.

Here is a post on using the QueryManager class to query search.  You should be able to use this API to get started.
