thank you for GridMove!
I have two requests/suggestions:
Position your windows and save the current arrangement. Later, e.g. after a reboot, restore the arrangement so all earlier opened windows will be opened again (just like sessions in internet browsers).
2. variable arrangement:
Instead of a rigid grid one have a completely flexible workspace. At start the first window grabs all desktop space. The 2nd window can be placed/inserted above, under, to the left or right of the first window. The 3rd window can then be placed/inserted similarly relative to the 1st or second window:
If it is placed above or under the 2nd window, the space occupied by the 2nd window is split into two equal halves, where the two windows (2nd and 3rd) are placed.
And so on with a lot of windows.
Perhaps one inconvenience is that one must handle all the positioning with the mouse, but it is the price for variability.
Some applications - like eclipse - have this feature to rearrange their GUI elements.
