I have been enjoying the window placement hotkeys in Ubuntu ever since I accidentally discover them. The possibility to center/maximize or reposition windows to any side of the screen becomes essential when you tasted the power of mouseless interactions. I only wished to find something similar for my cygwinized laptop, and was happy to learn that Windows 7 alows some window management via the keyboard with the following shortcuts:
:: windows-key + up-arrow: maximizes the current window
:: windows-key + (left/right)-arrow: docks the current window in the left or right side of the screen
:: windows-key + down-arrow: minimizes, or restores the size of a maximized window
