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


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.
