Linux, great operating system with the more and more windoze like gui
If you are using Compiz to give shinyness and you have Compiz Config
Settings Manager installed (yum install ccsm), you may be able to go

Manager. Once you are in, investigate the "Place Windows" plugin,
which may do a limited amount of what you want.
