Bluetile is a tiling window manager for X based on xmonad. Bluetile automatically arranges the windows to tile the screen, maximizing screen use.

Bluetiles features:

* Hybrid approach: Stacking window layout & tiling layouts available
* Maximizing & minimizing windows in all layouts
* All features accessible from mouse, as well as keyboard
* Good multihead support
* Designed to integrate with the GNOME desktop environment

Bluetiles is not very easy to install but that's basically because there is no how-to (or a decent one anyway) for this so I decided to provide a post with full installation instructions - for Ubuntu (I've only tested it in Ubuntu Karmic).
