When working on big screens I often use Gnomes “snap window to left/right border” by dragging a window to the left/right side of the screen. This results in a partially maximized window which I find very convenient.
I wonder whether it’s possible to either configure this behavior to have more of those areas in which I can maximize a window or do whatever is needed to display a configurable amount of virtual desktops on the same monitor.
Note: I already tried some tiling window managers like xmonad – but unfortunately most of them force all windows to be maximized (which is not always good) and you loose all the nice Gnome convenience.
So what I’m looking for is a way to have multiple ‘fullscreen’ windows on one display while keeping the default Gnome behavior.
