Windows Snap

KWin has also seen a number of feature additions, which mostly can be summed up as: copy the hell out of Windows 7: move to the top to maximise, move to the left or right to fill half the screen (for side-by-side viewing).

I'd say it does a better job of it than Windows too. Windows doesn't know how to do the side by side snap around where Monitor A hits Monitor B; KDE can.

In Windows you can snap 2 windows in side by side mode, then have a big gap in the middle. KDE lets you snap 4 windows side by side by side by side.

Windows + Right (or left) to snap on double screens (though I admit it could have worked from scratch).

I'm not surprised the keyboard shortcut works properly in this case. I am, however, surprised there is a shortcut.
