Is there a way to automatically give each window (app) equal space in a KDE desktop, like Tiling in Windows?

This question came from our site for system and network administrators.

KDE does not have the native tiling feature you're after, you may want to look into a tiling window manager like xmonad or ratpoison, or use the built-in workspaces.

Bug 165933 deals with tiling several windows. It's not reimplemented yet in KDE 4.

Not exactly what you are looking for, but a tiling window manager is coming in KDE 4.5, here's a demonstration. An early version is already avaiable if you are brave.

kwin in KDE 4.5+ has native tiling support.

Go to Window Behaviour in your KDE menu. Look around the tabs for the check box that tells KWin to tile your windows.
