In Super User, and all the StackExchange sites, shopping or product recommendations are considered off topic and open ended, and sometimes even too localized. Try to reword your question in a way that you are not asking for products, but more of processes; this will help keep it on topic – Canadian Luke Aug 9 '12 at 18:10

Keep CTRL pressed, click on the 2 taskbar buttons for the applications you want to tile (so the 2 buttons are selected), right-click and choose "Tile vertically" from the popup menu.

No need for an extra application, it's built in Windows!

+1 - very good tip! – Shevek Mar 1 '10 at 10:29

Another way to do it is to minimize all windows except the 2 (or more) you want tiled, then do the Tile Windows Vertically
