QuickTile is a simple attempt to duplicate the basic functionality of WinSplit Revolution for users who don't like the Compiz Grid plugin. It should work on any X11 desktop with PyGTK 2.2+, a window manager that supports the modern range of NETWM hints, and (if you want internal keybinding) python-xlib.
Tiling provides a simple window tiling system for Linux. It's for those who cannot (or don't want to) use a tiling window manager like awesome or Xmonad. There is no menu or GUI in tiling. You just (optionally) focus a window, press a keyboard shortcut, and that's it -- all windows in the current virtual desktop are tiled.
