Desklayer is the result of my thesis work on the theme "Developing an advanced user interface", the program wants to simplify the desktop experience and order windows on the desktop.
There are many utilities that do something similar to Desklayer, but i think that Desklayer does something more.
Desklayer is a windows manager that provides to arrange windows on the desktop in various types of layout. Desklayer allows you to move windows across all positions of the layout and arrange the windows size and the layout arrangement dynamically according to the size of the downsized window. Desklayer also re-arrange the layout in consequence of events that involve windows visible on the screen.
