I really do like the Grid plugin in Compiz, but at work I cannot use Compiz on my workstation (Fedora 12). Is there anything similar for plain X or Metacity?

The Grid-plugin gives you a few keyboard shortcuts for tiling active window. For example Ctrl+Alt+Numpad_4 would tile window to half screen.

I can answer this by myself now.

QuickTile does just the same thing as Grid in Compiz.

Although it has some bugs still in it.

Another one is PyTyle.

You should try a tiling Window manager like xmonad or RatPoison
