I tried a 20 inches plus monitor once and I returned to my 17 inch (or is this 19) because I couldn't handle working outside maximized mode but lately I've been looking for a grid over grid program but couldn't find any so I was wondering if this was the program that would allow me to do something like this by combining it with a text editor.

From this topic.

Is there a to do list/notetaker aimed at the “important but not urgent” “Important but urgent” “not important and not urgent” and “not important and urgent” system? I know that this can be done on paper but I’m looking for something like a grid over grid software.

Ex. You create 4 full squares with entries fitting each of these criteria on a specific category but then it zooms out and scales off and handles all your entries into another box.

Well.. GridMove is most useful with larger screens (usually 20' or larger), but I use it on my laptop frequently (14' screen), and it's still useful.
The only thing you have to keep in ming is that using smaller screens will probably imply using another grid, since grids with a large number of "hotspots" don't really fit for smaller screens, since each hotspot is too smal..

If you don't mind me asking, how or why do you use GridMove on a 14' screen?

Windows management program have always eluded me even from the days of tinkering with Opera's cascade and grid formation views. I just find it too small and I'm also surprised that this program is good enough on a 20' because when I tried the monitor, it didn't even feel like it can handle anything more than two maximized windows so it seems very unlikely to me to be suitable for even that size but this could be a case of intention muddling my viewpoints because you might be just using it to arrange your smaller windowed programs and not trying to fit it with a browser or a notetaker and I'm thinking of opening several notepads inserted within each view to create a 4 x 4 grid lay-out on top of a 4 x 4 grid on top of a 4 x 4 grid.

Well, I mostly use it to place Instant messaging windows on the 4 corners of the screen, and Windows Live messenger on the right of the screen. Notice that the screen has a resolution of 1280x800, the same as a 15.4' screen.
When I connect the external 20' monitor, I often use gridmove to place stuff on the laptop's screen, on the 4 corners, or in 3 columns and place stuff side by side on the 20'.
But I sure agree with you, GridMove's full usefulness can only be achieved with a really large screen smiley

Thanks for the info. Yeah, I think that's the key difference since I don't plan to use it for instant messengers.
