Organize your windows into mosaics with X-tile

X-tile is a small application that allows us to organize the windows of our work area by sorting them into mosaics. the program works in any desktop environment and is available in a variety of languages, including Spanish. It is also available for most distributions, either in the official repositories of the same or through binaries.

X-tile can be operated via graphical interface or by means of the console. Perhaps the most interesting thing about the application is that in addition to the included mosaic arrangements by default allows us to create our own using a simple editor. However, it is not necessary to edit anything as the default options cover most needs.
