I use WinSplit Revolution, freely available at
http://www.winsplit-revolution.com/ . It leaves a lot to be
desired when compared to xmonad, but it’s better than stock

There’s also a commercial application called Divvy at
http://www.mizage.com/divvy/ , but I’ve never used it.

Windows 7 has a few keyboard shortcuts by default that help,
such as Win+Left or Win+Right to make a window fill the left
or right half of the screen. Microsoft has a list at
http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows7/Keyboard-shortcuts ;
the shortcuts I listed above, as well as related functions,
are under the Windows logo key keyboard shortcuts.
