And look at the images too, they help you visualize what the patent is about.

And the patent pretty much describes the mouse based interface which Moom implements, and I can't think of any prior art of that.

You should be able to find prior art and invalidate many clauses of the patent, like the general idea of grid based layouts, especially driven by keyboard shortcuts and mouse gestures, but the general concept of a graphical drop-down menu for arranging windows will probably stay.
